Soil salinization is one of the most widespread soil degradation processes on earth and, worldwide, one billion hectares are affected, mainly in the arid–semiarid regions of Asia, Australia and South America [].In Europe, soil salinity has effects on one million hectares mainly in the Mediterranean countries [].There are two types of salinization: primary salinization caused by Cited by: The inner continental shelf is regarded as a repository of hyperpycnal flow (HF) deposits the analysis of which may contribute to hydrogeological risk assessment in coastal areas. In line with the source to sink paradigm, we examined the dynamics of the coastal watersheds facing the Salerno Gulf (Southern Tyrrhenian Sea) in generating hyperpycnal flows and investigated the Author: Ines Alberico, Francesca Budillon.

Parent Material Parent material influences the formation of Mediterranean soils through its mineralogical composition, coherence, and permeability for water. Mineralogy. These forests are confined to the cool perhumid bioclimatic zone and occupy a restricted area in the higher elevations ( - m) of the Coastal mountains, particularly in the western slope of Nabi Matta region. They are very degraded and need urgent protection. They represent an important special type of forest ecosystem from the.

It remains the only soil classification using the Mediterranean climate as the major soil differentiating criterium and is the concept essentially followed by several studies in this issue. Several countries (e.g. Italy, Israel) retained the term Terra Rossa for the hard limestone derived red soil in their national soil classifications.

by: Mediterranean Coastal Pollution focuses on scientific and technical information on the progress of measures and initiatives relative to the control of pollution in the Mediterranean. The book commences by pointing to the Mediterranean Action Plan.

The occurrence of soil in coastal zones is not a simple matter to resolve. Summarized coastal zones form a global perspective that only briefly indicates potential occurrence of soil in relation to coastal landforms, maritime climates, drainage, vegetation, and time available for formation.

Heavy metals are contaminants capable of induce environmental and health problems in soils, water, atmosphere and living organisms (Navarro-Pedreño et.

The main characteristic of the Mediterranean climate is the alternation of a moist cool winter and a hot dry summer exceeding generally 3 to 4 months.

Expressed in terms of soil temperature and soil moisture regimes, sensu Soil Taxonomy (USDA, ) and updates (Soil Survey Staff, ), Mediterranean soils have:File Size: KB.

The book also discusses the remedies and initiatives that need to be undertaken in the event of marine accidents. The methods to measure the quantity of pollutants in water is also discussed.

The text also presents experiments and studies that focus on the control of the effects of hazardous chemicals on coastal waters.

There are many competing interests especially for soil and water resources and the long term sustainable development of the region is far from being achieved.

This paper offers a general overview and description of major soils of the Mediterranean region, explain their extent and characteristics and offer suggestions for their use and management.

Abstract. The Mediterranean basin has served as the cradle for well known civilizations [].Its favourable environmental conditions have attracted humans towards the coastal parts for thousands of years and they exploited the land very severely, thus resulting in the degradation of this complex ecosystem [].During the last few decades the basin has become a focus of Cited by: A unique agreement, the Mediterranean Integrated Coastal Zone Management Protocol (ICZM) On 24 Marchthe Mediterranean ICZM Protocol1 entered into force to allow Mediterranean countries to better manage their coastal zones, as well as to deal with existing and emerging coastal environmental challenges.

Secondly, plants for a Mediterranean garden are mostly very water thrifty--they have adapted to survive long hot summers with little rainfall.

This coastal zone has a large number of economic and industrial centers, as well as important beaches and tourist resorts.

Consequently, irrigation water quality gets worse, specifically considering groundwater salinization near the coastal areas due to seawater intrusion, as well as triggering soil salinization.
