Abstract

The study area was selected with consideration to the fact that there stripes of (sandy) loess alternate with blown sand areas and this circumstance allows the contrasting of the properties of soils developed on the two parent materials of different nature. The geographical information system applied here is capable of simulating the agroecological potential changes caused by reduced precipitation, increased evaporation and dropping groundwater levels. The favourable water storage properties of loess make this deposit particularly valuable under the conditions of climatic aridification
