It has been almost 10 years since the Agro-meteorological Service of Sardinia has been involved in studying and monitoring desertification phenomena (Bianco et al., 2000). Desertification is meant to be a dynamic process, temporally distributed, which negatively influences ecosystems, diminishing productivity potential of natural resources. The mai...

Soil is a vital and largely non-renewable resource which is increasingly under pressure. Many EU policies (water, waste, chemicals, industrial pollution prevention, nature protection, pesticides, agriculture) are contributing to soil protection. But as these policies have other aims and other scopes of action, they are not sufficient to ensure an a...
