Andosol Symposia at
World Conference of Soil Science
(WCSS; 2006, USA)
The next World Conference of Soil
Science (WCSS) will be in Philadelphia, USA, July 9-15 2006 (see www
given below). The Congress decided to devote a special symposium to
volcanic soils. The session is titled ôAndisols and Related Soilsö,
1.3PA (Poster Symposia).
It is intended to address the latest
information on Andisol genesis, processes, interactions between
organic matter and short range order minerals, analytical problems,
regional distribution, and landscape relationships. It will include
influences of human activity, and consequences for soil protection,
land use planning and management.
Deadline for abstracts has been
extended to December 1.
The symposium will be convened by
Olafur Arnalds, Peter Buurman and Reinhold Jahn. We urge all
interested in volcanic soils of the world to participate.
