SoilSystems Webinar Series

The webinar series shall provide a platform for the participants of the SPP2322 SoilSystems to meet eminent scientists, to learn about their most recent advances, and to discuss results with them. The webinars shall facilitate the discussion of distinguished researchers with all scientific career levels in the SPP and shall particularly diminish inhibitions of young researchers.

Invited speakers will be distinguished scientists from different disciplines that are closely linked to the objectives of the SPP2322 SoilSystems. The webinars will focus on fundamental research and will address the topics carbon and energy fluxes, thermodynamics, microorganisms, trophic interactions, and modelling in soil systems.

The SoilSystems webinars will be held quarterly in digital format via Zoom. The access links will be distributed among the participants of SoilSystems via the internal SoilSystems mailing list. Feel free to share the link with additional members of your group. If admitted the webinars will be recorded and provided to the SoilSystems audience via the intranet. For further information, please contact Dr. Marcel Lorenz (
