XIIth International Symposium and Field Workshop on Paleopedology

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.
