Can Vapor Equilibriation be used to bring soil samples to a certain pF value?
What is the Problem? For many types of Soil Physical measurements to be compared properly, the soil should be brought to a certain pF value. This can for example be done at a sandbox or in in a pressure chamber. However, these  ...

Do prescribed burns promote soil erosion and alter plant diversity.
Problem context Prescribed fire removes or reduces the plant material that is prone to forest fires by creating fuel discontinuity and minimising fire intensity. This forest management measure potentially impacts Mediterranean  ...

The impact of climate and land use change on land degradation in a semi-arid catchment
Climate change is expected to have a negative impact on land degradation, mainly due to the projected increase in extreme precipitation. Land use change may amplify (e.g. due to agricultural intensification) or decrease (e.g. due  ...
