Issue Description

Letter from the Editor-In-Chief

It is a pleasure to announce the publication of the first issue of the tenth volume of the Spanish Journal of Soil Science. It contains six research articles, four of which deal with effects of land use and its changes (soil biology, spectral characteristics, physical degradation) in different geographical areas (Argentina, Spain, Russia, Benin). Additionally, you will find a methodological contribution on field measurements of tillage erosion and a diagnosis of soil and water quality related to rehabilitation of areas affected by mining activities.

As always, on behalf of the editorial team, we thank the authors for sending the manuscripts, the guest editors for their rigor in the selection and review of manuscripts, the referees for the quality of their reviews, and the team Universia for its professionalism.
