1 EUROPEAN SOIL DATABASE version 1.0 1:1,000,000 Soil geographic database v European Soil Profile Analytical database. HYPRES pedo-transfer functions.

2 SOIL PROFILE ANALYTICAL DATABASE - SPADE 1 lSoil horizon property data for dominant STUs. Many STUs have no data. lParticle-size, O.C., pH Bulk D., Hydraulic properties, CEC, Base saturation. lMeasured data set -Some missing properties. lEstimated data set - All properties estimated, but method indicated. lOnly one land use per STU - Often not arable.

3 SPADE2 PROJECT OBJECTIVES lExpand the Estimated soil profile database to include primary soil properties for ALL STUs. For the 15 EU countries only. lPrimary Soil Properties are: clay%, silt%, fine sand%, medium sand%, coarse sand%, organic carbon%, pH, Bulk density.

4 SPADE2 Project & Database administration lFunded by ECPA. lCo-ordinated by National Soil Resources Institute, Cranfield University, UK (Project manager. J.M. Hollis). lSub-contracts to National data providers from all 15 EU countries

5 SPADE2 Database administration lFourth component of the European Soil Database. lAvailable under the same terms and conditions as the existing database. lAll ECPA members will hold a royalty free copy.

7 SPADE-2 – Project Overview lAll 15 National soil data providers contacted about participation. lNegative response from Austria & no reply from Greece (even after several contacts!). lProject started November, lProtocols for data generation and formal sub-contracts sent to National data providers. lData providers from France, Spain, Sweden & Ireland did not respond to sub-contracts. lAll other countries (Belgium & Luxembourg, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, UK) completed data supply by March 2004).
