Focus on research

Discovering what is beneath our Feet, Ghent University

A country's physical land resources are a fundamental pillar of support for human life and welfare. Worldwide, population pressures and severe degradation, pollution and desertification problems are threatening this - for several countries relatively scarce - natural resource, and cause competition between agricultural or industrial purposes, urban planning and nature conservation. While some soil scientists focus on crop growth modelling, soil information systems, and detailed topographical and soil maps of regions in and outside Belgium, others use their expertise in soil spatial inventory techniques to team up with historians and archaeologists.

They reconstruct prehistoric landscapes such as Stonehenge through electromagnetic induction survey. They set up non-invasive landscape archaeology in Flanders Fields discovering remnants from the Great War. They increase our knowledge about Roman times and the Middle Ages by charting lost harbours and centres of commerce. They are in fact the detectives of our soil, making visible what lurks beneath our feet.
