Abstract

[automatically translated] The valley of the river Sarcone (River basin Guidaloca) collects water from numerous sources that arise from calcareous mountains places at higher altitudes. At lower altitudes they evolve on clay soils and long sandy marl soil formation, deep and morphology in light or moderate slope. It dominates the semi-arid climate. 827 to 1072 the area was occupied by the Arabs who introduced the practice of irrigation. In recent years the area has been the subject of study by a team of Spanish archaeologists from the University of Granada (Spain), which had as its theme the presence of the Arabs. They were the ones that have stimulated one pedological study to highlight the distribution area of ​​irrigated land. Where the application has been put in these terms, he could only have suffered a negative response; because, as is known, the soils in time to vary the weather and operating conditions, change the characteristics. So at a distance of ten centuries it was impossible to find soils that have such requirements. The field of detection has highlighted soils that retain intensive management thanks to the presence of alluvial shell and of ground debris that have "sealed" the horizons previously outcropping. The work illustrates the methodology used in the survey of the field and the morphological characteristics of the soils found.
