RUDN University in Moscow and field locations

The 3MUGIS summer school is an annual event, which addresses relevantcontemporary environmental consequences and opportunities of urbanization with special emphasis on soil functions. The event is organized under the umbrella of the International Union of Soil Science (IUSS), RUDN University (Russia) and the Urban Soil Institute (USA) with strong cooperation from universities, institutions and research teams from around the world.

The 3MUGIS summer school provides students with first hand field experience examining anthropogenic impact sequences across conventional soil forming factors from Subartic to Subtropical climates. At the end of the program, students will better understand the social, climactic, and geographic factors that contribute to human soil modification in this region; the long-term implications of such changes; practical skills to perform in-field soil monitoring, soil mapping and remote sensing; and applied skills in identifying, implementing, and managing opportunities for urban green infrastructure development.
