Letter of the Editor-In-Chief
The IV Iberian Congress of Soil Science took place during the month of June 2014 in Santiago de Compostela. Five plenary lectures and more than 150 papers covering, transversally, all disciplines of soil science were presented. The Spanish Journal of Soil Science, through the careful editing by Drs Maria Teresa Silva Barral and Montserrat Diaz-Raviña, as guest editors, is pleased to publish two special issues with a selection of articles derived from the Congress, which have been revised through the standard review process of SJSS. The articles presented in this second special issue deal with soil and water pollution and sanitation, forest and wetland soil quality, and the effects of fire on soils. We thank the guest editors, the authors and the reviewers for the scientific quality of their work that will help to increase the quality of the SJSS.
