Personal profile


My teaching activities are mainly within physical geography as soil science, soil contamination, nutrient dynamics in the landscape, hydrology and modeling.
Physical geography and geoecology (Geography A)
Drainage basins: processes, modeling and management
Urban ecology
Field courses
Examples on recent projects I have supervised:
Land slide activity in the Faroe Islands
Climatic change science and the media
P-dynamics in a Danish landscape 
Modeling N and water dynamics using DaisyGIS
Water balance and water management
Diffuse soil contamination.
Settlements and P content in soils


My interests are in soil science mainly soil development, soil mapping and use of soil data in e.g. modeling and landscape planning. Recently, my interests focus on nutrient dynamics in the landscape and modelling hereof, soil development and land slide activity in The Faroe Islands and regional soil development in Denmark.
