6 Conceptual framework


8 Basic GIS data for Machakos

9 See c:\to31_mk\arcview\machakos.apr

10 Data acquisition Digital soil mapping Climate interpolation Model callibration

11 Traditional soil survey Scale Number of observations 100625 2,500 10,000 62,500 250,000

12 Parent material Topography Tillage erosion Land management Climate Causes of soil variability

13 Cause 1: Parent material

14 R2R2 Results

15 Cause 2: topography

16 R2R2 Results

17 Cause 3: Soil variability


19 Tillage erosion = f(distance, topography) No tillage erosion Strong tillage erosion Cause 3: Soil variability
