    Soil Organic Carbon Mapping Cookbook 2nd Edition 2018
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Soil Organic Carbon Mapping cookbook provides a step-by-step guidance for developing 1 km grids for soil carbon stocks. It includes the preparation of local soil data, the compilation and pre-processing of ancillary spatial data sets, upscaling methodologies, and uncertainty assessments. Guidance is mainly specific to soil carbon data, but also contains many generic sections on soil grid development, as it is relevant for other soil properties. This second edition of the cookbook provides generic methodologies and technical steps to produce SOC maps and has been updated with knowledge and practical experiences gained during the implementation process of GSOCmap V1.0 throughout 2017. Guidance is mainly specific to SOC data, but as this cookbook contains generic sections on soil grid development it can be applicable to map various soil properties.

    Global Soil Organic Carbon Map – GSOCmap v.1.6
    Technical report

    This document presents the technical details of the first-ever country-driven Global Soil Organic Carbon Map (GSOCmap). This map allows the estimation of Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) stocks from 0 to 30 cm. It represents a key contribution to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicator 15.3.1, which defines the area of degraded land. The novelty of this map is the fact that it is the first Global SOC stocks assessment which is produced through a participatory approach. Supported by the GSP-Secretariat, countries developed their capacities and stepped up efforts to compile or collect all available soil information at the national level. This technical report is a companion report to the GSOCmap V1.6.0. It presents methodologies and process of compiling the Global Soil organic Carbon Map (GSOCmap).

    Global Soil Organic Carbon Map (GSOCmap) Version 1.5
    Technical report
    2020
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    GSOCmap is the first global soil organic carbon map ever produced through a consultative and participatory process involving member countries, which makes this map totally new and unique. In fact, the map was prepared by member countries, under the guidance of the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils and the Global Soil Partnership Secretariat. Countries agreed on the methodology to produce the map and were trained on modern tools and methodologies to develop national maps. The Global Soil Partnership then gathered all national maps to produce the final product, ensuring a thorough harmonization process. This technical report is a companion report to the GSOCmap V1.5. It presents methodologies and process of compiling the Global Soil Organic Carbon Map.
