Department’s Research Profile:

1) Cartography and spatial valuation of soils at the national and regional level, including the phenomena of erosion and land marginalization;

2) studying the physical and chemical properties of soils and monitoring the dynamics of their changes at national and regional level;

3) determination of the impact of agricultural and non-agricultural activities on the condition of the natural environment – monitoring and improvement of the criteria for the assessment of soil and water pollution by xenobiotics of various origin;

4) research of mechanisms and indicators of soil degradation and development of methods of land reclamation and degraded areas.

5) supporting the implementation and assessment of the impact of free policy instruments with regard to soils and the environment; 

6) assessing the possibility of using waste substances for fertilisation and soil remediation;

7) transforming the available resources of spatial information on soils into formats used in the European Union;

8) running databases and modelling of phenomena taking place in agricultural 

and urban spaces using GIS techniques;

9) developing models for comprehensive urban planning, taking into account European Union standards.
