Event description
During this excursion, we will explore how man has shaped, and is still shaping the landscape, hydrology and soils of Ghent

About this Event

We will move to a habitat unknown to many soil scientists: the city. Although Flanders is highly urbanised, the urban soilscape remains a blind spot in our soil science knowledge. During this excursion, we will explore how man, throughout history, has shaped, and is still shaping the landscape, hydrology and soils of the city of Ghent. The excursion stops will take us to different historic parts of Ghent that testify to the various interactions between humans, soil, landscape, and hydrology, and illustrate how this influences ecosystem service delivery.

Join us on the excursion to reflect on how we can characterize, evaluate and manage our urban soilscape, and this against the stunning scenery of the city of Ghent!

Included in the price: guided tour, excursion guide, tourguide system (headphones), lunch + drinks.

The excursion is only for members of SSSB and NBV. Please update your membership before the day of the excursion.
