1 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Update on JRC-Soil and Waste Unit Work Programme 2005 Giovanni Bidoglio

2 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Streamlining the flow of policy relevant soil data from data collection to final reporting To maintain, extend and update the European Soil Information System (EUSIS) in collaboration with ESBN, including: an up-dated geometry of EUSIS based on the 90m DTM (SRTM) mosaic for Eurasia the semantic component of EUSIS with level II Soil Profile Analytical Data (SPADE II) a revised Manual of Procedure for Soil and TERrain database (SOTER), and a revised SOTER database for Europe extension of the geographic coverage of EUSIS to include the Mediterranean basin countries and Eurasia extension of the meta-database with a European Archive of Digital Soil Maps including the original National soil maps contributing to the system

3 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Topical and Timely Publication Raise awareness of soils and EU Strategy Unique reference on soils of European Informative, easy to read, graphically stimulating, high level authors Publicise the work of the JRC and ESB Network Quality Product 2005 Major Deliverable: Soil Atlas of Europe

4 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Support the development of an European Soil Monitoring System Develop criteria for the representativity analysis of existing national monitoring networks in Member States Study the feasibility of a stratified approach to soil monitoring in a selected pilot area Establish a working group of experts for the selection of parameters to be monitored for the different threats in EU soils (based on the outcomes of the TWG Soil Monitoring)

5 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Develop and test the GMES ground segment for soil monitoring, develop new approaches towards digital soil functional mapping for the delineation of areas performing relevant soil functions, and develop techniques for monitoring of changes of Soil Organic Carbon by remote sensing Application of statistical model for OM of degraded semi-arid soils to Landsat TM in the Guadalentin catchment SE-Spain Use of Spectral Reflectance Measurements for the Assessment of Soil Organic Matter Content 2.5% Organic matter w%

6 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Development of Soil Pilot Projects Testing the INSPIRE principles in soil monitoring systems developed in selected test areas, e.g. ALPSIS Contributing to the forest soil monitoring activities (FOREST FOCUS) and testing approaches for soil monitoring in burnt areas Supporting the implementation of the LUCAS field survey by EUROSTAT by developing guidelines (manuals) and informatic tools (palmtop, GPS) for in-situ soil visual assessment in Europe (ESVA) New Soil Portal:

7 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Soil Information System of the Danube River Basin SIS-Danube, focus on new Member States Construction of the database, based on: The Georeferenced Soil Database for Europe. Manual of Procedures, Version 1.1 LISFLOOD, a distributed water-balance, flood simulation and flood inundation model, Version 1.0 (Ad de Roo et al., EC/JRC, 2002) Procedures and experiences developed in the pilot project creating the soil digital database for the Odra basin at the scale 1:250,000 (Warsaw, 2001) Database structure (based on soil and landscape data for three levels): Soil region Soil scape Soil body

8 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Harmonization procedures and analytical capacities for soils Establish a reference point for the harmonised sampling, field measurement and laboratory analytical methods in the context of the Thematic Strategy for Soil Protection and related policy fields Organise intercomparison trials and QA/QC exercises in support to the ESBN and in collaboration with IRMM-Geel Explore research in support to emerging topics in soil monitoring through the application of innovative approaches and measurement techniques in selected pilot areas Develop and validate across-matrix, horizontal EN-standards DG ENV Technical Annexes of EU- Directives (Sewage Sludge and Biowaste Directives, Soil Monitoring Directive)

9 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Actions on multi-country level requires harmonised criteria and procedures to classify and compare environmental impacts (outcome of the TWG Soil Contamination, link to the E&H Strategy) Concepts for Assessment and Ranking of Contaminated Sites

10 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 INTEGRATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS IN THE AGRICULTURAL POLICY New perspectives for FP6 and beyond Supporting the JRC Strategy on Sustainable Agriculture Good Farming Practices as condition to eligibility for LFA compensatory allowance and baseline for AE measures Targeted Agri- Environmental (AE) measures Minimum environmental standards Rural Development pillar 2 Set aside premium Extensification premium Environmental requirements (cross compliance) Market Policy pillar 1 Environmental targetsEnvironmental ref. level

11 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 New Challenges Agri-environmental Measures and Cross-compliance Are minimum environmental standard requirements implemented? Do Rural Development programmes deliver what they promise? What is a Good Farming Practice (for soil, water, land management)?

12 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Land assessment Land suitability - Environmental constraints on agricultural production Characterisation of Rural Areas Scientific support on farming practices CAP and land-use / cover / landscapes Building capabilities supporting the assessment of Rural Development programmes A geo-spatial analysis tool to target geographically the efficiency of Community policy related to agriculture, environment and rural development: a Land Information System for Agri-Environment

13 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Environmental Database Spatial Reference Systems (e.g., River and Catchments, NUTS, Landscape units) including environmental attributes and pressure indicators Land Surface Processes (surface energy balance, ETR, soil erosion, sediments, land degradation) Hydrologi cal Model (nitrates, pesticides, water quantity…) Land Cover/Use Model (land cover/use change scenarios, LUC diversity) Landscape and Surface Drainage Model (river networks, catchment boundaries, …) NDSoil D Reference Data Sets, Reports, Maps, Expertise DG ENV: CCM rivers and catchments, nitrate maps, … EEA: EWN stations and catchments, proxy pressure indicators, … DG AGRI: land use change scenarios and effects on landscapes, land degradation, soils, … Terrain Model (slope, aspect, wetness indices, …) CAPWFD

14 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Scenario analysis (agricultural practices) Scenario analysis (agricultural practices) Results, reports, maps, recommendations Policy Questions: Agro-Environmental schemes Land-use changes Water framework directive, Nitrate Directive Policy Support Policy Questions: Agro-Environmental schemes Land-use changes Water framework directive, Nitrate Directive Policy Support Europe-wide Harmonized Geographical Database Assessment procedures (nested approach) Fate of Agrochemicals in Terrestrial Ecosystems in Europe A joint project with EEA

15 ESBN General Assembly, November 2004 Delineation of Less Favoured Areas intermediate class Identification of environmental constraints on agricultural production (soil, slope, altitude, climate) which potentially could be used to define the future LFAs Testing the link of marginal agriculture and geographical variables Contribution to the design of new Less Favoured Areas (programming period )
