The Australian Society of Soil Science Incorporated, known as Soil Science Australia is a not-for-profit, professional association for soil scientists and people interested in the responsible management of Australia’s soil resources.
Soil Science Australia supports soil scientists and promotes the importance of soil as a finite resource. Some members are students, some are at the start of their careers while others are highly regarded experts in Australia and internationally.
Soil Science Australia has seven branches and is governed by an elected Federal Council. Each branch has its own committee responsible for organising local educational, professional development and networking events.
Our current Federal Executive and Council Members are listed on our Corporate Governance Page.
Soil Science Australia provides professional certification for suitably qualified members (and non-members) as Certified Professional Soil Scientists (CPSS).
Our patron is Dr Penny Wensley AC.
Soil Science Australia is a member of the International Union of Soil Sciences.
