Organic Carbon Content In European Soils
Entry ID: EUSOILS_OCTOP

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Soil Portal makes available the Maps of Organic carbon content (%) in the
surface horizon of soils in Europe. The data are in ESRI GRID format and are
available as an ASCII raster file or in native ESRI GRID format. In addition,
an interactive application allows the user to navigate in the Organic Carbon
data with OCTOP Map Server and print his own customized map.
