PRESENTATION

The course will comprise lectures, exercices with thin sections provided by the lecturers and also with material brought by the participants and visits to a thin section lab. There will be a maximum of 2 participants per microscope, as well as facilities to work with the microscopes during extra time and to discuss the participants own thin sections with lecturers and colleagues. A certificate issued by the University of Lleida, under the auspices of the International Soil Science Society and the Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya will be handled to the participants who attend a minimum hours of lectures.

The approximate programme of the course is the following:
• Principles of mineralogy and petrography, optical mineralogy
• Micromorphology sampling and making thin sections
• Guidelines for the description of thin sections of soils and regoliths
• Micromorphology of soil materials and identification of soil formation processes: carbonate-, gypsum- , and salt affected soils, volcanic soils, clay accumulation, hydromorphic soils, tropical and highly weathered soils, glacial and periglacial processes.
• Micromorphometry and image processing.
• Soil genesis and classification
• Geomorphology
• Paleosols
• Archaeology

• Optional weekend excursion around the Tremp basin: Geology, Mediterranean soilscapes, soil genesis, sampling techniques, archaeology (roman village of Isona).
Personal work: Thin section study, exercices on thin section description

The lecturers are experienced professors and researchers from the Universities of Lleida, Ghent, Barcelona, Politécnica de Madrid and La Laguna.
