Research at the Institute of Soil Science


The institute hosts a modern soil chemical and soil physical infrastructure.

Currently, research evolves around the following topics:

  • The soil solution as a monitor for ecosystem processes
  • Gas fluxes in forest soils
  • The importance of the coarse soil fraction ("soil skeleton") for bio- and geochemical element cycles
  • Forest opening and soil erosion
  • The prediction of nitrogen losses from specialised cultivations
  • The influence of soil deformation on soil functions
