Soil pit on Irchel campus of the University of Zurich
In 2013 we were happy to receive a soil pit for teaching purposes right on Irchel campus of the University of Zurich. This Linic Technosol is a nice profile to give some practical insights into soil description and how such profiles can look like in urban areas. Since we had to move from our old soil pit towards the new one in 2017, we have been using this profile in our Geo241 class "Soil, Plant, Environment", where we take more than 100 Geography and Earth System Science BSc students (in 2021 it was 140 students!) outside, every year. The soil profile is also in use for other exercises of our group as well as for the UZH Science Lab.
