Research

Research interests

Dr. Lobb's research focuses on biophysical processes within landscapes, particularly soil movement by tillage and tillage erosion. He is internationally recognized for his research in tillage translocation and tillage erosion, particularly for his advances in experimental methods and modeling. His expertise in soil erosion and conservation has been sought by the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency and Food and Agriculture Organization, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, in addition to provincial and federal government agencies across Canada. David currently co-chairs the FAO’s Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils.

Current Projects

  • Soil redistribution within landscapes and its impact on biophysical processes that affect agriculture and the environment
  • Tillage systems and their impacts on biophysical processes that affect agriculture and the environment
  • Agri-environmental indicators, and their use for national and international assessments of soil erosion
  • Soil-landscape variability: causes, characterization and management (precision-farming)
