Presentation of specific Soil Properties and Processes for supporting ecological engineering provisions as for example filtering, buffering and transformation mechanisms.
Lecture part: 1) Factors and Processes of soil formation; 2) Technical soil parameters; 3) Ecological functions of soils as structured porous systems; 4) Overview of the main Austrian soil types.

Working exercise: Students work (literature research) via Internet in groups on specific ecological engineering topics. Presentation and discussion of the results. Students are asked to bring their Notebooks, if available, with wlan reception.

Exkursion: During a 1 day field exkursion, "Cross section of northern landscapes in Lower Austria from Loess to Paleozoicum" the influence of climate, parent material and landuse on typical austrian soils will be shown and discussed by analytical lab results.


Knowledge of the main relevant soil constituents, processes and functions which are important for ecological engineering tasks, especially the implementation of Natural Soil Properties.
