The main objective of the teaching is to provide the knowledge necessary to interpret the genesis, the evolution of a soil, and its link with the landscape, with particular reference to paleoenvironmental interpretations and the Quaternary geology. The bases will be provided to understand the processes of formation of a soil and the link with environmental (climate, geology, morphology) and anthropic factors (use and management of the soil). The student will learn the basics to understand the spatial distribution of soils and their temporal evolution within the landscape, through practical examples of interpretation of soil maps and reading of the pedo-landscape.
