DATASET

Topsoil physical properties for Europe (based on LUCAS topsoil data)

Collection: ESDAC : European Soil Data Centre 

Description

This dataset (GIS maps)(2016) contains 7 soil property maps that have been derived using soil point data from the LUCAS 2009 soil survey (around 20,000 points) for EU-25,

using hybrid approaches like regression kriging. Properties: clay, silt and sand content; coarse fragments; bulk density; USDA soil textural class; available water capacity. Resolution 500m.
