13 32nd IGC Florence 2004 Soil Regions of the European Union R. Hartwich - BGR
14 32nd IGC Florence 2004 Procedure for the delineation of soil regions: 1.delimitation of areas with similar climate, 2.subdivision of these areas by parent material associations with similar geologic-paleogeographic development, 3.assignment of the occurring dominant soils.
15 32nd IGC Florence 2004 Each single soil region is characterized and described by: dominant soil types and regional name dominant parent material climatic data altitudes and major landforms.
