Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Aims and content: Students can describe and discuss (1) the multiple functional dependencies in terrestrial systems (2) the genesis and properties of common soil types (3) fundamentals in geoecology, geomorphology and quarternary science. They are able to describe and interpret the complex interdependencies of soil formation, chemical and physical soil properties, nutrient cycles, ecosystem state factors, and terrestrial biota and food webs. Graduates are able to summarize the organic and inorganic composition of soils and can describe important chemical processes that influence the behavior of nutrients and pollutants. They recognize the function of soils in global element cycles and are able to critically analyze important environmental problems, such as soil contamination and erosion.
On April 8 2020, we learned that the excursion cannot take place. Aware of the fact that learning outside together was the explicit aim of this part of Terrestrial Systems, it is hard to replace it by more desk work. But the lecture alone cannot fill the workload required for this course. So you will be supplied asked to prepare a small essay on peatland types instead of the excursion. Details will be posted on moodle. I am truly sorry about this! Stephan Glatzel
