Soil science and agricultural chemistry
Research topics in the field of soil science and agricultural chemistry
  • studies on the effects of land-use changes, various land-use systems and climate change on processes involved in the soil, water, material and energy cycles and on the quality of surface waters, including modelling at the field and watershed levels using various spatial and time scalesresearch on the role of interactions between microorganisms, higher plants and the soil in soil processes, plant nutrition and soil remediation, and the characterisation of the ecological status of the environment
  • mathematical modelling of the water and nutrient cycles and the biological processes taking place in the soil–plant–atmosphere system
  • use of digital soil mapping and spatial modelling tools to study soil processes and soil functions over time and space in order to characterise and prevent soil degradation processes, or to moderate their damaging effects.
