WRB Summer 2019


30/Jun/2019 to 05/Jul/2019




Globalization itself and solving the global environmental issues, as well as the unification of research and teaching on the global level require harmonization of technical languages, such as the terminology and classifications used in soil science. Rules of soil characterization and classification are an important part of such a professional language. As so many „languages” – national systems are used in the world the common Lingua Franca is needed to understand each other. World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB) is probably the best proposal to facilitate international exchange of information in soil science. WRB summer workshop is organized under the auspices of IUSS Working Group WRB by experts organizing the soil classification trainings for nearly 10 years. The aim of event is to help the beginners using WRB or enhance skills in soil classification during one day indoor and 3 days intensive field activities. The venue is in the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city of Toruń. Students, PhD students and young researches are particularly invited (but senior researchers are also welcomed).
