The most prominent decreases were localized in different parts of the country (the Alps, the Apuan Alps, the ToscoEmilian Apennines, Campania and Calabria regions). Organic carbon content (SOC) is a soil property that can be affected by climate change (Siegenthaler et al. 2006). The mentioned authors (Fantappiè et al. 2011) found that the observed climate change which occurred between the two periods had a general low influence on SOC variations (Fig. 19). 62 °C). The decreasing SOC content of lands with increasing hot and arid climate could be a soil indicator of the consequences of the extension of the Mediterranean subtropical climatic regions in Italy.

A. C. Costantini et al. Fig. 8 Climate Change and Soil The World Meteorological Organisation has defined as the ‘‘norm’’ of a climatic variable the calculated average value for a uniform period of three consecutive decades (World Meteorological Organization, 1984, 1989). The climatic thirty years 1961–1990 have been used as a reference for many climatology studies (Beltrano et al. 2007). According to Vento (2004), a general climatic change occurred in Italy in the period 1961–2000, with a general reduction in mean annual precipitation and the number of rainy days, and a 2 Climate and Pedoclimate of Italy 35 Fig.
