It is the result of a study about the erosion of the soils and it is part of the academic exchange among the three institutions.
The U.S. delegation was represented by the Ph.D. Amanda Schmidt from the Oberlin center, along with Paul Bierman from the University of Bermon and the Cuban Environmental Researches center was represented by Ph.D. Rita Yvelice Sibello Hernández.
“The related actions started last year in the central provinces through the water-sample collection of the river sediments to compare the results with previous researches about the losses of soil in those regions.” Ph.D. Rita Yvelice explained.
Those actions made possible the related work, training and skills while taking the samples, carrying out measures and tests. They created the conditions for the application of those research methods on the erosion in those specific regions of Cuba.
They will give their contribution to the Cuban state plan in terms of the soil´s protection and the water. The tests, which could be carried out at the aforementioned Cuban center (CEAC) and in the foreign laboratories, will be useful as quality-control process of the analytic results, according to the researcher of that center.
