“WRB SUMMER”, Toruń, Poland, 30th June -5th July 2019

Globalization itself and solving the global environmental issues, as well as the unification of research and teaching on the global level require harmonization of technical languages, such as the terminology and classifications used in soil science. Important part of professional language are rules of soil characterization and classification. As so many „languages” – national systems are used in the world, the common Lingua Franca is needed to understand each other. World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB) is probably the best proposal to facilitate international exchange of information in soil science.
“WRB summer” workshop is organized under the auspices of IUSS Working Group  WRB by experts organizing the soil classification trainings for nearly 10 years. The aim of event is to help the beginners using WRB or enhance skills in soil classification during one day indoor and 3 days intensive field activities.
The venue is in a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city of Toruń. Students, PhD students and young researches are particularly invited (but senior researchers are also welcomed). A website providing more information is available at:
