The distribution of these soil components in a particular soil is influenced by the five factors of soil formation: parent material, time, climate, organisms, and topography (Jenny 1941). Links and documents useful in this effort are provided on this page. It can be hard to figure out what other conditions must stay the same. Six elective modules (36 ECTS) are to be chosen (you can also chose elective modules from the list of so far not attended mandatory modules).
