Two interesting datasets were added: 1) "Soil Organic Carbon - Saturation Capacity in Europe", 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; and 2) "Maps of indicators of soil hydraulic properties for Europe", containing maps for  saturated water content, water content at  field capacity, water content at wilting point, saturated hydraulic conductivity. They are available after registration.
