BelSU researchers developed a system of information-bearing indicators to reproduce the land erosion dynamics for three and a half centuries

The results of the interdisciplinary research avail an information basis to predict the destructive impact of land erosion on the most important arable farming resources soil fertility

The interdisciplinary research on the interfaces between soil sciences, landscape geochemistry, dendroclimatology, history and paleogeography was conducted at the Federal Regional Centre for Aerospace and On-Land Monitoring of Nature Objects. It was focused on the study of erosion accumulating processes by investigation of historical fortifications. The Head of the Federal Regional Centre Fedor Lisetskiy explained the reason for choosing fortifications as research objects according to him they represent an erosive catena complex in the system earth mound earth trench, i.e. a natural earth distribution in the artificial terrain that enables to study the land erosion accumulation dynamics for an long-term time span.
The research conducted by the BelSU team proved that for the paleogeographic markers of the century-long changes can be taken such indicators as the total amount of accumulated phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese and copper, organic carbon content and its qualitative composition.
