Abstract: The interest in soil organic carbon (SOC) among soil scientists and practitioners is quite common due to its extensive influence on various environmental issues pertaining to global studies. But, this topic has recently got recognition as one among the most priority issues, because of its implications on the global and pan-European policies, e.g., SOC plays a key role in major Rio conventions, e.g., climate change, biodiversity and Combat Desertification. At the pan-European level SOC takes a central stage within European Soil Thematic Strategy issues (ESTS) (see EC COMMUNICATION (2002, 179)). The objective of this paper is to introduce a feasible method for detecting the changes of organic C in the mineral soils of EU.
