Abstract

As known, the soil plays a fundamental role in providing ecosystem services. The present work is a part of a wider interdisciplinary research concerns on the effect of urban and periurban land use changes on soil carbon stocks, in order to evaluate the potential contribution of the land use transformation in the mitigation of CO2 emission. We present the preliminary results of a case study in the municipality of Imola. In particular we have investigated the soil characteristic of several areas currently classified as "artificial green areas" but characterised by a different variation in their land use. These preliminary results can allow the validation and calibration of a methodological approach that can be extended to different spatiotemporal scenarios and that can support sustainable development territorial choices.
