K V - Soil genetics, soil systematics, soil information

Commission V brings together soil scientists from universities, state geological services and soil protection authorities. The commission acts as a bridge between science and application. The specialist content of Commission V covers the areas of soil genesis, soil mapping, soil systematics and soil geography, pedometry, palaeopedology as well as soil information management and soil evaluation. The focus is on soils in their landscape context and their social significance. Accordingly, the scale-dependent spatial and temporal derivation and modeling of soil properties and soil functions as well as their distribution and evaluation play an important role, as does the development of associated methods. In these areas, the aim is to promote the further scientific development of concepts, theories, methods, techniques and systematics and their implementation in practice.
