Current activities 

Dr. Leone is actually involved in researches pertaining the:

  • development and validation of methodologies for proximal soil sensing and the use of multivariate statistical techniques to characterise soil, with special attention to Mediterranean agro-forestry systems;
  • soil-landscape modelling and mapping in agricultural systems of southern Italy
  •  assessment and mapping of interactions between physical-environmental properties and olive oil quality (zoning) in olive-growing systems of southern Italy
  • assessment and mapping of interactions between “andic” properties of soils and wine composition in vineyard systems of Campania region (southern Italy)
  • evaluation of multivariate statistical techniques for studying complex relationships between physical-environmental properties and grape and olive oil compositions.
