Title: Maps of the Storing and Filtering Capacity of Soils in Europe


This dataset (2016) contains 10 maps that relate to the soil's storing and filtering capacity in Europe (the EU only): cation storing capacity (STOR_CAPCA), cation filtering capacity (FILT_CAPCA), anion storing capacity (STOR_CAPAN), anion filtering capacity (FILT_CAPAN), solids and pathogenic microorganisms storing capacity (STOR_CAPSO), solids and pathogenic microorganisms filtering capacity (FILT_CAPSO), non-polar organic chemicals storing capacity (STOR_CAPNP), non-polar organic chemicals filtering capacity (FILT_CAPNP), nonaqueous Phase Liquids (NAPL) storing capacity (STOR_NAPL), nonaqueous Phase Liquids (NAPL), filtering capacity (FILT_NAPL). As input, variables from the European Soil Database have been used.
