Among the culprits, desertification and land impermeabilization appear to head a long list of phenomena. To assess for the first time the state of the national soil, identifying and studying phenomena that affect them and develop innovative solutions to prevent, in the long term, the country's south region - mainly - to become an arid desert, a team of researchers from the UA have rolled up their sleeves.
