Main directions of research activities
  • Soil erosion management: control and localization with modern methods of investiga-tions (GIS and RS Methodology, Agrotechnical Solutions).
  • Development of the modern concept for ecological-economical optimization of agricultural lands.
  • Research of theoretical and applied aspects of preservation and sustainable soil use taking into account soil erosion factors as esti-mated basis of designing conservation land-scapes in agrarian reform of soil surveillance, land quality assessment, soil remediation, agrotechnologies, and organic agriculture.
