ISRIC — World Soil Information Zoom Talk: Past Environments of Peatlands

Date: Thursday 10 February 2022

Thursday 10th February 2022 from 14.00-16.00 CET.

Why is it important to date peat from the depths of raised bogs, many of which have now been dug away? Can science help reconstruct how water flowed and where bog iron ores developed? How might an artist begin to think about such scales of time and space?

Explore these questions with Head of World Soil Museum Stephan Mantel, WUR Assistant Professor in Soil Geography and Landscape (SGL) and Cultural Geography (GEO) Roy van Beek, WUR PhD candidates in Soil Geography and Landscape Group Cindy Quik and Aukjen Nauta, and artist Kate Foster.  For more information and to book your place, please click here.
