Sealing and loss of prime agricultural soils by urban and industrial development have been found to be among the main physical soil degradation processes in Sardinia where, due to limited soil resource, this phenomenon is of great concern. Since urban and industrial development are planned within the frame of Municipal Urban Plans, the purpose of this study is to bring a methodological contribution to make sound geopedological studies and to define the criteria to be followed for the sound choice of soil uses in the mentioned Plans. The proposed methodology foresees: a soil survey for making the Pedolandscapes Map, 1:10.000 scale, and the application of the Land Capability Classification system; a soil use survey for making the Soil Use Map at 1:10.000 scale; the application of the Land Suitability Evaluation system to evaluate the level of suitability of soils to the different possible uses. This methodology has been applied to the municipal territory of Monastir (southern Sardinia). The Authors believe that the proposed methodology may direct municipal urban planning towards a rational land use.

Abstract

Sealing and loss of prime agricultural soils by urban and industrial development have been found to be among the main physical soil degradation processes in Sardinia where, due to limited soil resource, this phenomenon is of great concern. Since urban and industrial development are planned within the frame of Municipal Urban Plans, the purpose of this study is to bring a methodological contribution to make sound geopedological studies and to define the criteria to be followed for the sound choice of soil uses in the mentioned Plans. The proposed methodology foresees: a soil survey for making the Pedolandscapes Map, 1:10.000 scale, and the application of the Land Capability Classification system; a soil use survey for making the Soil Use Map at 1:10.000 scale; the application of the Land Suitability Evaluation system to evaluate the level of suitability of soils to the different possible uses. This methodology has been applied to the municipal territory of Monastir (southern Sardinia). The Authors believe that the proposed methodology may direct municipal urban planning towards a rational land use.
