Article
Full-text available
In this work, sampling was carried out in the urban area of Madrid to analyze the content of total heavy metals (Zn, Pb, Cu, Cr, Ni, and Cd) in the street dust. Contamination was evaluated using various indices, such as the Contamination Factor (CF), Enrichment Factor (EF), Geo-accumulation Index (Igeo), Potential Ecological Risk Index (RI), Pollut...

Full-text available
Agriculture practices developed since the middle of the last century have led to the degradation of different resources and made it necessary to promote agricultural models that are less aggressive towards nature. Sustainable agricultural growth requires a more efficient use of land. An experimental model was designed with four treatments in the Ca...

Full-text available
The evolution of soil chemical properties over 20 years was monitored to assess the effects of the change in soil management from a rainfed to an irrigated model and the use of organic amendments and crop rotation. Intensive agriculture has been the activity that has caused most degradation and contamination of this soil. Long-term monitoring of th...

The electrical conductivity (EC) and ionic composition of the soil solution of a Haplic Calcisol in Campo de Cartagena (Murcia, Spain) were studied in situ for four years in an experimental open-air vegetable plot, together with the relationship between these parameters, the quality of the irrigation water and the management of the plot. The result...

For some years now, part of society has been demanding the implementation of circular economy models and so the use of organic matter as a source of nutrients is once again taking center stage. In this scenario, the aim of this work was to implement an integrated management model for a farm and to study the influence on a celery crop of organic ame...
Article
Full-text available
In the present work, a sampling grid of the urban core of the city of Murcia (South East Spain) was designed in order to analyze street dust, focusing on the contents of the heavy metals Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb, and Zn and their relationships with the color of the sample, the traffic pattern, and the location where they were sampled (sidewalks, ledges,...
Article
Full-text available
The systematic use of magnetic techniques for the characterization of soils is still scarce despite its great potential for the identification of pedogenetic processes. The main objective of this study is to analyze the magnetic properties of a soil profile with contrasting horizons and try to relate them to the properties determined through conven...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
High concentration of some toxic elements may potentially endanger the integrity of population and ecosystem. In some circunstances, magnetic measurements can be used as a low cost proxy technique to estimate the concentration of these. The objective of this work was to determine the spatial distribution of the specific magnetic susceptibility and...
Article
Wetlands are highly effective systems mitigating the negative effects of N excess, but at the same time they contribute to global warming through greenhouse gas emissions. The present study aimed to ascertain the role of Phragmites australis in N transformations in eutrophic semiarid salt marshes, under low (NO3− = 20 mg L−1) and high (NO3−=200 mg...
Article
The installation of desalination plants close to ecosystems of interest may have environmental impacts that make corrective measures necessary. Especially, wetlands (which are water-dependent ecosystems) are prone to degradation. This is the case for the Agua Amarga salt marsh (SE Spain), that includes an abandoned solar saltworks and surrounding,...
Article
In this study we quantified the different forms of nitrogen, organic carbon and phosphorus in two eutrophicated watercourses flowing into a coastal salt marsh of the Mar Menor lagoon and analysed the role of the water flow regime in the nutrient loads flowing into the salt marsh. We discuss the degree to which the soil–plant system in stands of Phr...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Physical soil properties have been widely proposed as an indicator of soil quality. The aim of this study was identify the relationships between physical soil properties and present uses. Attending to the high level of soil degradation and the stressful environmental characteristics, the Mazarrón area (S.E. Spain) was selected for this study. Struc...
Article
Different types of pollutants were studied for one year in soils and waters of a coastal salt marsh (the Marina del Carmolí) of the Mar Menor lagoon (SE Spain). Strongly eutrophicated water with high concentrations of phosphorus (12.3 mg L-1 maximum), ammonium (31.1 mg L-1 maximum) and nitrates (281.9 mg NO3- L-1 maximum) was found in the watercour...
Article
Metals in soils and stems of Arthrocnemum macrostachyum and Sarcocornia fruticosa from a polluted salt marsh (SE Spain) were determined. Total contents in the soils were Fe = 132650 ± 60500 mg kg-1, Pb = 8016 ± 4077 mg kg-1, Zn = 6940 ± 8279 mg kg-1, Mn = 2288 ± 1692 mg kg-1, and Cu = 109.8 ± 76.7 mg kg-1. Diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA)-...

Resumen. Se presentan los resultados obtenidos en un muestreo sobre la cubierta vegetal, propiedades físicas y quí-micas del suelo y tasas de escorrentía y erosión, a lo largo de un transecto longitudinal a la pendiente, con tres tipos de usos del suelo: matorral, campo abandonado (con dos edades de abandono) y campo de cultivo. Los resultados indi...

Senecio glaucus L. subsp. glaucus, a taxon considered native to the Eastern Mediterranean (Israel and Egypt), has been recognized for the first time in littoral sand beaches and dunes of southeastern Spain. A comparative study between Senecio glaucus subsp. glaucus, Senecio glaucus subsp. coronopifolius, and Senecio gallicus was made with herbarium...

Soil physical and chemical properties determine the hydrological behaviour of soil. From this hypothesis, the objective of this study was to establish pedotransfer functions able to determine soil hydrodynamic characteristics from the analytical data available in the current soil maps of Segura River watershed. The range of values and the average o...

The final aim of HMulchCircle project is clearly associated to the use of novel hydromulching formulations as sustainable alternatives to the use of plastic films. Hardnessing crop wastes whose degradation by the soil microbiota into H2O and CO2 and humus will contribute to improve the nutritional status of the soil, reducing fertilizes needs.
