Title
Saline and Sodic Soils
Abstract

The Saline and Sodic Soils Map shows the area distribution of saline, sodic and potentially salt affected areas within the European Union. The accuracy of input input data only allows the designation of salt affected areas with a limited level of reliability (e.g. < 50 or > 50% of the area); therefore the results represented in the map should only be used for orientating purposes.In total there are 5 categories:

Saline and Sodic Soils
Code Value
--------------
1 - Saline > 50% of the area
2 - Sodic > 50% of the area
3 - Saline < 50% of the area
4 - Sodic < 50% of the area
5 - Potentially salt affected soils.
