Soil Organic Carbon - Saturation Capacity in Europe

This dataset (map) (2016) shows the Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) saturation capacity, expressed as the ratio between the actual and the potential SOC stock in each pixel. Values close to 0 indicate a great potential of soil to store more carbon.

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...

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...

Heavy Metals in topsoils

GIS Maps (2008) produced by mapping the concentrations of eight critical heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, mercury, nickel, lead and zinc) using the 1588 georeferenced topsoil samples from the FOREGS Geochemical database. The concentrations wer...
