Prof. Auerswald (*1955) tries to understand and reveal, how agricultural und agriculturally influenced ecosystems function. In the beginnings, his focus was on soil erosion from arable land while during the last two decades he increasingly became fascinated by stable isotopes as indicators and tracers of many physiological and ecological processes in terrestrial and aquatic systems.

Prof. Auerswald studied agricultural sciences at TU München (Dipl. Ing. agr. Univ. in 1980), wrote a PhD thesis at the chair of soil science at TU München (1984, with distinction), after a position at the Bavarian Geological Survey, he habilitated (1992) and received the venia legendi for soil science at TU München (1994). In 1994 he got an offer as full professor of 'Soil Science and Soil Protection' by University of Halle. Since 2001 he is adjunct professor at TU München.
