The Pedometrics Conference in Wageningen, Netherlands was special (June 26 – July 1, 2017) (PM2017 pdf). We celebrated 25 years of pedometrics. Pedometrics became a Commission of the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS) in 2004 and has been growing exponentially over the past decades with focal areas in Digital Soil Mapping (DSM), Digital Soil Morphometrics, Modeling of Soil and Landscape Evolution, Proximal Soil Sensing, and Soil Monitoring. Information about the conference, including abstracts and detailed program, are available at: http://www.pedometrics2017.org/


Dr. Grunwald gave an invited keynote talk at the Pedometrics Conference:

“Past, Present and Future of Soil Physical, Chemical and Biological Process Knowledge in Pedometrics”
