The 3MUGIS summer school is an annual event, which addresses current 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.
The inaugural summer school coincided with the SUITMA 9 international congress organized by RUDN University in May 2017. The next 3MUGIS-2018 included an intensive week of in-door an out-door lectures, master-classes, field work and informal discussion with the top level scientists and practitioners, followed by a week-long field tour observing natural and anthropogenic soils and landscapes of Central Russia. In 2019, an innovative format of the school expanded the list of studied topics and geographical horizons of the field trip. Five days of on-campus training were followed by a two-week field tour from the Barents Sea to the Azov Sea and from subarctic to the dry steppe landscapes.
