EGU 2020

„Sharing Geoscience Online“

EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online brings part of the activities of the cancelled EGU General Assembly 2020 online. From 4 to 8 May 2020 a broad number of scientific sessions show the diversity of the geosciences through various interactive presentations. Most are offered in a text-based chat system, but some sessions, short courses and debates are also shared by video conferences or on youtube. Everybody can join without registration fees.

The Soil Science and Geomorphology Group is active with many contributions and also available for questions and answers in the online discussions. Have a look at our contributions here:



Carina Becker et al.: Using multi-temporal Sentinel-2 data to predict chemical properties of the organic surface layer of forest soil

Laura Bindereif et al.: Synthetic sampling for spatio-temporal land cover mapping with machine learning and the Google Earth Engine in Andalusia, Spain

Zuonan Cao et al.: Soil and vegetation feedbacks on climate change in high mountain ranges of the Tibetan Plateau using near and mid-infrared spectroscopy (FT-NMIRS) in soil properties, phosphorus (P) as example

Corinna Gall et al.: Soil Erosion in Mesic Forests: How do Biological Soil Crusts affect sediment transport and surface runoff?

Philipp Gries et al.: Soil formation and biological soil crust development in glacier forelands of Svalbard (High Arctic)

Tobias Rentschler et al.: Volumetric soil quality modelling with machine learning in a diverse agricultural landscape in Andalusia, Spain

Nicolas Riveras Munoz et al.: Soil erosion controlled by biota along a climate gradient in Chile

Steffen Seitz et al.: Soil erosion monitoring at small scales: Using close range photogrammetry and laser scanning to evaluate initial sediment delivery

Ruhollah Taghizadeh-Mehrjardi et al.: Predicting and mapping of soil salinity using machine learning algorithms in central arid regions of Iran

A session on “Interactions between Geology, Biology and Climate at the Earth’s surface “ (SSS8.10) is organized by Steffen Seitz and Laurent Husson et al. on Friday, 8 May 08:30 – 10:15
