International field workshop WRB soil classification 2018
septembre 16 - septembre 23
A field trip into a pedological mosaic of Transylvania is proposed for the 2018 workshop. The soil pattern is imposed by a varied relief starting from lowlands, with extensive alluvial terraces, to tablelands and mountains. During the workshop, we will experience a diversity of soils (approximately 20 soil profiles) that include Chernozems, Phaeozems, Luvisols, Cambisols, Technosols and soils with archeological interest formed in Roman Empire period heritage sites. Most of these soils show intensive and extensive agricultural land use including one of the biggest vineyards in Europe. This field workshop is sponsored by the IUSS Working Group WRB.
