Effects of Soil Contamination. Climate change. Deforestation causes a change in the rain cycle and this is a contributing factor to global warming and loss of ecosystems. Loss of soil fertility. With the rapid growth of human population, we need all the food we can get. Chemicals used on soils reduce soil fertility so food production drops. Soil data and maps The pages in this area of the soils portal tell you about Manaaki Whenua 's soil databases, services, and related datasets and maps. Soil data are gathered for many different reasons, each with their own specialist techniques, but wherever they are from, most data finish up in a few key databases managed by Manaaki Whenua.
Soil contamination is one of the greatest concerns among the threats to soil resources in Europe and globally. Despite of its importance there was only very course scale (1/ km 2) data available on soil heavy metal concentrations prior to the LUCAS topsoil survey, which had a sampling density of km on the results of the LUCAS sampling and auxiliary information detailed . Continuous simulations with the LISFLOOD model within the European Flood Alert System produce daily soil moisture maps of Europe. This information provides an instantaneous image of the current situation of the water content as modelled by LISFLOOD. Meteorological input information is derived from measured and spatially interpolated meteorological point data provided by the MARS-STAT activity.
Soil carbon stocks in the EU are around 75 billion tonnes of carbon; around 50 % of which is located in Ireland, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom (because of the large area of peatlands in these countries). The largest emissions of CO 2 from soils are due to conversion (drainage) of organic soils, and amount to 20–40 tonnes of CO 2 per hectare per year. The most effective option .

The Digital Archive is a collection of scanned soil maps. The objective was to transfer soil information from maps into digital format, with the maximum resolution possible and to preserve the.
Soil map of Europe. book For some 40 years, ISRIC – World Soil Information has been providing significant support to the international science community by collecting and archiving regional- national- and global-scale maps of soils and land resources.
Despite effective procedures for storage and maintenance, most organizations involved in archiving struggle to arrest the deterioration of paper maps and the quality. The International Union of Soil Science (IUSS) - at its Seventh Congress, at Madison, Wisconsin, USA, in - recommended that soil maps of continents and large regions be published.
As a follow-up FAO and Unesco decided in to prepare a Soil Map of the World at project was completed over a span of twenty years. It was the fruit of world-wide collaboration between.

The site is updated and maintained online as the single authoritative source of soil survey information. Soil surveys can be used for general farm, local, and wider area planning. Harmonised in situ data on soil moisture are not available across the EU. Modelled soil moisture content has significantly decreased in the Mediterranean region and increased in parts of northern Europe since the s, as a result of past warming and precipitation changes.
Significant decreases in summer soil moisture content in the Mediterranean region and increases in north-eastern Europe. Get this from a library.
Soil map of Europe,Explanatory text. [Raoul Dudal; R Tavernier; Donald Arthur Osmond; Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.]. Farmland Values, Soil Survey, and GIS Maps. View GIS maps that compile agricultural data, including farmland values, soil productivity ratings, crop mix, and parcel ownership information.
Legacy maps and databases refer to data and maps compiled using field surveys backed up by remote sensing and other environmental data, expert opinion and laboratory bulk of soil information was collected in this way. The technological advances in remote sensing, computers, terrain analysis, geostatistics, GIS data integration, and instrumentation has made it possible to achieve.
The most updated national soil information can only be obtained from a country’s national soil service. However, International organizations such as FAO, ISRIC World Soil Information, the Joint research Centre of the European Commission and others have compiled and harmonized national soil information in regional datasets or made soil maps available in digital format.

The Harmonized World Soil Database is a 30 arc-second raster database with over 15 different soil mapping units that combines existing regional and national updates of soil information worldwide (SOTER, ESD, Soil Map of China, WISE) with the information contained within the scale FAO-UNESCO Soil Map of the World (FAO, ).

They often cover a whole country or a larger region. They may be designed for the needs of mineral exploration, agriculture, land planning or risk management, but in most cases, they may also be used for other purposes.
