Conference dates: August 10-15 2013
OFFICIAL LANGUAGE: English
As a traditional activity of the International Commission on Paleopedology of IUSS the XIIth ISFWP combines scientific sessions and field trips. The main goal is to discuss Soil, Geomorphic and Sedimentary records of Pleistocene and Holocene environmental changes.
Unique loess-paleosol sections, Paleolithic sites, and alluvial and colluvial pedosedimentary sequences with Late Pleistocene and Holocene paleosols will be presented during field trips.
A special attention will be paid to famous Russian Chernozems. Classic views and modern genetic concepts will be discussed at spectacular sites with Chernozems under virgin steppe vegetation. Chernozems will be also examined as an important paleoenvironmental archive.
We believe that field trips would be an exiting and important endeavour providing an opportunity for joint field experience and open discussions on the genesis and paleoenvironmental significance of paleosols.
Scientific sessions of XIIth ISFWP will be held in the Hotel Complex “Solovyinaya Roscha” 12
and 13 August 2013.
Address: Engelsa Street 142 A, Kursk (Hotel), Russia
