International WRB Soil Classification Field Workshop in Latvia and Estonia (July 22-27, 2017)

This workshop will look at differently formed automorphous, semihydromorphous and hydromorphous soils (approximately 24 soil profiles) in intensively and extensively used agricultural lands and in deciduous and coniferous forest lands of the boreo-nemoral region.

Soils are developed mainly on Late Weichselian glacial deposits (formed by loamy sand, sandy clay, loam, clay, gravel, sand) and altered to some extent by postglacial aeolian, marine, lacustrine, alluvial and mire sediments, as well as formed on pre-Quaternary sedimentary rocks. The soils show different organic surface layers: mull, moder, mor, amphi etc. more information...
