Soil Organic Matter (SOM) fractions

This dataset contains the original measured Soil Organic Matter (SOM) fractions of a subset of the LUCAS 2009 topsoil dataset. This dataset includes 352 samples for all land uses and 186 samples only for grassland and fores used to derived maps on Particulate ...

Global phosphorus losses due to soil erosion

Global average phosphorus (P) losses due to soil erosion in kg ha−1 yr−1. Thus we combine the most recent spatially distributed global soil erosion estimates with global P content of cropland soils (data also available for P content)

Mercury content in the European Union topsoil

Topsoil Hg concentrations (μg kg−1) across 26 EU countries estimated by deep neural network – regression kriging. We also provide Mercury stocks and mercury fluxes to main riverbasins and sea outlets. The assessment is based on 21591 LUCAS samples (0-20cm) fro...

Water erosion in Europe by 2050

The dataset includes the soil loss by water erosion projections by 2050. The data include 3 raster files for the corresponding three different greenhouse gas concentration scenarios (RCP2.6, RCP4.5, RCP8.5) , the erosivity projections and the C-factor 2050.

Support Practices factor (P-factor) for the EU

This GIS map (2015) represents the "Support Practices factor" (P-factor) for the EU. At European level, the effect of support practices (compulsory for farmers to receive incentives under the CAP-GAEC) on soil loss were assessed by P-factor estimation taking i...
