  • An exploration of an area hardly pursued because of limited understanding of the cycle of organic carbon in soils
  • A report of the techniques and methodologies used by the research groups during the four-year national Italian project (FISR-MESCOSAGR)
  • The results have been applied to develop an innovative model to predict and describe, both quantitatively and qualitatively, sequestered organic carbon compounds in the treated soils

This compilation of techniques, methodologies and scientific data arises from a four-year Italian research project, which took place at university research stations in Turin, Piacenza, Naples and Potenza. Soil Organic Matter (SOM) represents an active and essential pool of the total organic carbon on the planet. Consequently, even small changes in this SOM carbon pool may have a significant impact on the concentration of atmospheric CO2. Recent new understanding of the chemical nature of SOM indicates that innovative and sustainable technologies may be applied to sequester carbon in agricultural soils. Overall results of the project have been applied to develop an innovative model for the prediction and description, both quantitatively and qualitatively, of carbon sequestration in agricultural soils. This book provides experts in different areas of soil science with a complete picture of the effects of new soil management methods and their potentials for practical application in farm management.
