Laura Gargiulo is a PhD student supervised by Prof. F. Terribile at the department of Soil, Plant, Environmental and Animal Production Sciences at University of Naples “Federico II”, Italy. Part of her work is done at CNR-ISAFOM (under the guidance of Dr. G. Mele). Her research focuses on soil structure formation processes studied using soil 2D and 3D image analysis. Her main interest is to investigate the relationship between soil structure and soil biology. The EGU poster 2010 presents results of a preliminary work on the use of image analysis to quantify the contribution of different biological activities to the soil pore system.
