Interdisciplinary thinking has always been the key to scientific success as seen by the lifework of famous polymaths such as for instance C.F. Gauss or H. Poincaré. Nowadays, science becomes more and more complex, and being polymath is nearly impossible. In order to keep the key to success, strong interlinking of different research fields has become an important issue.
Prof. Hus embraced this philosophy when stepping on the path of scientific carrier, resulting in close collaboration with archaeologists, geologists, life scientists, mineralogists and physicists. He gave proof of this by numerous transdisciplinary publications in internationally accredited journals. Moreover, Prof. Hus promoted strongly archaeomagnetism as valuable dating tool and strengthened the relationship with the archaeological community. Beside his successful research career at the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium, Prof. Hus was a dedicated lecturer at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel teaching Applied Geophysics, Magnetostratigraphy, Palaeomagnetism and Tectonics.
We are inviting contributions dealing with archaeo- and loess magnetism and anthropogenic pollution.
