This dataset (2015) provides maps for Topsoil Soil Organic Carbon in EU-25 that are based on LUCAS 2009 soil poibnt data through a generalized additive model. Map of predicted topsoil organic carbon content (g C kg-1) : The map of predicted topsoil organic carbon content (g C kg-1) was produced by fitting a generalised additive model between organic carbon measurements from the LUCAS survey (dependent variable) and a set of selected environmental covariates; namely slope, land cover, annual accumulated temperature, net primary productivity, latitude and longitude. It also includes a Map of standard error of the OC model predictions (g C kg-1).
