The course aims at providing students with knowledge about effects of climate changes on soil functionality. Actually, Soil is an important element of the climate system. It is the second largest carbon sink, after the oceans. The course is focused on contents dealing with the effects of climate change on carbon accumulation or release in/from soil as well as on soil functionality in terms of availability of nutrients for agricultural practices. Eventually the course will address the issue of the sustainable use of the soil in both urban and rural areas and how this aspect might contribute to the climate change mitigation and support an adaptation to it.
