Dr. Simona Vingiani Investigation in waste polluted sites by means of proximal sensing equipment (electrical conductivity and gamma-ray analysis) and trace element determination by using portable X-ray Fluorescence analyzer. Studies of organ-mineral interactions aimed to understand soil organic matter (SOM) stabilization processes in Andosols. Soil properties in viticulture areas aimed to land management. Land evaluation for specific purposes (such as biomass production) and land degradation (such as volcanic andic soils involved in landslide events). Soil survey and soil mapping.
