- Natural Soil Susceptibility to Compaction
The map of natural soil susceptibility to compaction was created from the evaluation of selected parameters from the European Soil Database. The soil susceptibility to compaction was divided into 4 categories. Two additional categories represent the data concerning places where this evaluation was either not relevant or could not been provided because of lack of information. In total there are 6 categories:
Natural Soil Susceptibility to Compaction
0 - no soil. This represents water bodies, glaciers and rock outcrops
1 - low susceptibility to compaction
2 - medium susceptibility to compaction
3 - high susceptibility to compaction
4 - very high susceptibility to compaction
9 - no evaluation possible. This was the case of towns including also soils, soils disturbed by man and marsh.
