The Working Group on Soil Systematics of the German Soil Science Society is commissioned with the further development of the german soil classification. The classification is based on two systems:
- soil genetics
- grouping of soil forming parent material
An additional mission is to interact the results with soil scientists, geoscientific education, geoscientific authorities and the public.
