WP 5: Validation and application

Lead Partner: CULS


Application and validation of various soil function and soil threat models, based on data provided by the integrated approach of geophysical sensing and digital soil mapping (WP 1-4) on test sites with known soil degradation impact

(Cross-scale) application, analysis and validation:

  • of the integrated techniques and algorithms developed in WP 1-4 to map soil properties, functions and threats
  • of soil function and soil threat models based on geophysical data and digital soil maps provided by WP 1-4
  • based on a hierarchical representative sampling and mapping approach, as developed in WP 4 at a large independent test site
