It is well know that a flat functor between two small categories will induce an adjoint triple between the respective presheaf categories via left and right Kan extensions. I will explain how certain conditions imposed on the flat functor can enable us to restrict this adjunction to subcategories of sheaves, and I will comment on the significance of this in the study of local geometric morphisms.

I will briefly sketch a gentle introduction to Kan extensions for those who aren’t yet familiar with them.
