Soil-Landscape Modelling

Location: Wageningen University

As we are reaching the limits of human use of our lands, there is an increasing need to design climate-smart, sustainable land use and land management solutions. To provide this it is crucial to have a mechanistic understanding of processes and interactions between soils and landscapes. This is the topic of the very active research field of soil-landscape modelling. Following a recent review and the development of novel models, the community now organises a soil-landscape modelling course for all interested PhD candidates, postdocs and other academics. Learning objectives include gaining an understanding of concepts and modelling approaches, and working on the participant’s own case studies with some of the available models. The course will be held on the beautiful campus of Wageningen University in the Netherlands, in the fall of 2016.
