Soil water: mineral soil characteristics at permanent measuring points - (HIPs only) - Italy

This data is Private.

Dataset Abstract

Characteristics of the Italian soils.

Dataset Design

Mineral soil characterization was done once at each HIP per region at the permanent measuring point where additional parameters were measured and taken permanently. The positions of the permanent measuring point was under a stand gap. Measuring technique was performed by "finger technique" out in the field.
