Mission in a Minute

World Soil Day: December 5

Every five seconds, the equivalent of one soccer field of soil is eroded.

This alarming fact reaffirms the need to raise awareness through World Soil Day, an annual event to focus attention on the importance of healthy soil and to advocate for the sustainable management of soil resources.

Soil filters our water, provides essential nutrients to our forests and crops, and helps regulate the Earth's temperature and important greenhouse gases. Analysis and testing are two very important factors in sustaining a healthy ecosystem and human wellbeing.

Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a broad range of soil analysis applications, and our colleagues work with customers to find the right technologies and provide reliable and accurate results to better monitor and impact our ecosystem. Our full spectrum of analytical technologies helps enable our customers to fulfill our Mission, keeping our environment and ecosystem healthy.
