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.
