Advanced Soil Physics

Aarhus University

The course is designed to give the student an in-depth understanding of the soil as a three-phase system (solid, liquid, gas). A basic knowledge of soil science and physics as a discipline is assumed. On this basis, the aim is to provide a quantitative description of soil architecture and the physical processes in the soil pore system. The course will give a fundamental understanding of the methods used to describe soil properties and soil physical processes including those responsible for transport and leaching from the vadose zone to ground water and/or the aquatic environment.

The course is an off-campus course and held at Aarhus University Foulum, Blichers Allé 20, DK-8830 Tjele.

AU Foulum is part of Aarhus University and is home to most of the university’s research in food and agriculture. Research areas include plants, animals, food, organic farming, bioenergy, environment, climate, soil, genetics and technology.

It is your own responsibility to arrange accommodation in Viborg. We recommend that you book a room close to the city center.
