Letter from the Editor-In-Chief

With great pleasure I present volume 8, issue 3 of the Spanish Journal of Soil Science. On December 5th we will celebrate the World Soil Day, this time dedicated to soil pollution. This year's theme (Be the Solution to Soil Pollution) is related to two articles published in this issue, specifically on the rehabilitation of technosols through compost amendments; and also on the rehabilitation of sodium soils. The other articles deal with the rehabilitation of soils affected by fires, aspects of phosphorus fertilization and the effect of green fertilization on carbon sequestration. Again, the diversity of the origin of the authors is an added value to the quality of the articles contained in this issue.

As always, on behalf of the editorial team, we thank the authors for sending the manuscripts, the referees for the quality of their reviews, and the team Universia for their professionalism in managing and editing the platform.

 

Sincerely,

Rosa M. Poch
