Establishment of a new institute: Institute of Earth System Sciences (IESW)

The previous institutes – Soil Science, Geobotany, Geology, Mineralogy as well as Physical Geography and Landscape Ecology – are merging and will form the sections of the new institute. In any further correspondence, we will be known as a section of the Institute of Earth System Sciences.
The new common website will be launched soon.

As one of the largest soil science institutes in Germany, we cover the entire spectrum of soil science in research and teaching, spanning from the process level on microscale to anthropogenic changes in the critical zone. With our departments of soil chemistry, soil biophysics and soil physics we work daily to ensure that the basis of life for all of us can be preserved and better understood, even in times of climate change and overexploitation.
