Soil Threats Data

In this category, some datasets related to soil threats as they have been identified by the European Soil Thematic Strategy are presented. Detailed information about the Soil Threats can be found in the relevant theme section of the portal. For some soil threats such as Soil Erosion, Organic Carbon Decline, Compaction, Salinisation, soil Biodiversity decline, Land take and food security, Landslides and Heavy Metals, datasets are readily available for downloading.
