  • Digital Soil Mapping as a Support to Production of Functional Maps

    Numerous environmental and socio-economic models (risk assessment, scenario testing, etc.) require soil parameters as inputs to estimate and forecast changes in our future life conditions. However, the availability of soil data is limited on both national and European scales. Soil information (i) is either missing at the appropriate scale, (ii) its meaning is not well explained for reliable ...


  • European Digital Archive of Soil Maps (EuDASM); Metadata of The Soil Maps of Asia

    The European Digital Archive of Soil Maps (EuDASM) was initiated by the MOSES (Monitoring the State of European Soil) action team members of the Soil and Waste Unit (SWU) in the Institute of Environment and Sustainability (IES), located at the Joint Research Centre (JRC), Italy in collaboration with ISRIC – World Information Centre, Wageninegen, The Netherlands to establish a global digital ...


  • Geophysical applications to solid waste analysis

    Abstract: Case studies of regional landfills show that electromagnetic geophysical methods can accurately and inexpensively define boundaries and thickness of waste. Degradation of putrescible solid waste generates conductive leachate that can be imaged with a frequency-domain terrain conductivity meter. Terrain conductivity measurements can be modified through a simple algorithm based upon ...

  • European Digital Archive of Soil Maps (EuDASM); Volume 1: Soil Maps of Africa

    Soils are vital for the existence of mankind. It acts as medium to produce food and fiber, it regulates water storage and filtering, and provides raw material for construction. The oldest recorded information on soil distribution dates back around 7000 years: the famous Soil Altar in Beijing (China). More systematically, information has been collected since the 19th century, starting in Europe. ...

Employing an integrated approach tothe investigation of air, water and soil contaminants, its goals are sustainable management of water ...


  • Aqueduct Global Maps 2.0

    Executive Summary This document describes the specific characteristics of the indicator data and calculations for the Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas Global Maps. Complete guidelines and processes for data collection, calculations, and mapping techniques are described fully in the Aqueduct Water Risk Framework.1 The Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas makes use of a Water Risk Framework (Figure 1), that includes ...

  • Mapping sediment thickness case study

    Polk County, Florida Bathymetric and sub-bottom surveys were conducted within a clay settling pond at a Phosphate mine in Central Florida. Prior to the geophysical survey, a depression or slump had formed along the northern dam of the pond. The purpose of the study was to map various sediment layers within the pond to help determine if the depressions or slumps were related to sinkhole ...

  • Digital soil-class mapping from proximal and remotely sensed data at the field level

    Effective agronomic management at the field level requires an understanding of the spatial distribution of soil because edaphological processes are a function of interrelationships among the physical and chemical properties. In precision agriculture, these interrelationships need to be considered to create soil management classes. In order to identify management classes, the age-old questions ...

  • Molecular genetic linkage map for allotetraploid colonial bentgrass

    Interspecific hybridization is a widely used approach to improve crop species. We are pursuing the possibility of using interspecific hybridization between the turfgrass species colonial bentgrass (Agrostis capillaris L.) and creeping bentgrass (A. stolonifera L.) for the improvement of resistance to the fungal disease dollar spot (Sclerotinia homoeocarpa F.T. Bennett) in creeping bentgrass. From ...

  • Special purpose mapping for waste disposal sites: Report of IAEG Commission 1: Engineering Geological Maps

    This report results from work that was first proposed to a meeting of the International Association of Engineering Geology (IAEG), Commission No.1 held in Bratislava (Slovakia) in 1992. Following the publication of the Commissions report on Engineering Geological Maps (Engineering geological maps (1976) and reports on the description and classification of rock and soil and on recommended symbols ...

  • Innovative, Non-Intrusive Passive Soil Gas Collection Device Maps Large Carbon Tetrachloride Plume at the DOE Hanford Site, Washington -- 10501

    Abstract Approximately 100 hectares (250 acres) were investigated as part of the passive soil gas (PSG) investigation that included multiple areas of concern. The objective of the investigation program was to rapidly identify potential source areas and guide future sampling events based on the frequency and magnitude of compounds identified in the survey. PSG sampling was the preferred ...

  • Magnetic and ground probing radar measurements for soil pollution mapping in the industrial area of Val Basento (Basilicata Region, Southern Italy): a case study

    Abstract  The joint application of electromagnetic techniques for near-surface exploration is a useful tool for soil pollution monitoring and can also contribute towards describing the spatial distribution of pollutants. The results of a geophysical field survey that was carried out for characterizing the heavy metal and waste disposal soil pollution phenomena in the industrial area of Val ...


  • QTL mapping of dormancy in Barley using the Harrington/Morex and Chevron/Stander mapping populations

    Grain dormancy in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is quantitatively inherited. Low levels of dormancy before harvest can lead to pre-harvest sprouting (PHS) in the field, which affects grain and malt quality. The objective of the present study was to determine the locations and effects of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) controlling dormancy in two F1–derived doubled-haploid (DH) populations from the ...

  • Soil geography and geostatistics

    Geostatistics, which can be defined as the tools for studying and predicting the spatial structure of georeferenced variables, have been mainly used in soil science during the past two decades. Since now, hundreds of geostatistical papers have been published on soil science issues. The use of geostatistical tools in soil science is diverse and extensive. It can be for studying and predicting soil ...

    Untitled Document This report presents the results of a peer review of work on soil erosion carried out by the EEA up until 2001. It also summarises the conclusions of an expert ...

  • Hyperspectral thermal infrared line profiling for mapping surface mineralogy

    Abstract An airborne hyperspectral thermal infrared line profiling spectrometer (TIPS) has been developed by CSIRO and Fugro Airborne Surveys to measure and map surface mineralogies. TIPS is a spectrometer based on an FTIR instrument, recording radiance channel in about 100 channels in the 8 mm to 13 mm wavelength range from contiguous 10 meter pixels along the flightline, at a nominal ...

  • Upstream silver source mapping – a case study in Stockholm, Sweden

    Silver (Ag) can be a problem for wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) and their capability to use sewage sludge as a soil fertilizer. Due to a high accumulation rate in soils, the levels of Ag in the incoming water at the WWTP must be reduced. This study aims to identify major diffuse emission sources in the technosphere through a comprehensive substance flow analysis of Ag in Stockholm, Sweden. ...
