Soil Salinity maps of the Emilia-Romagna plain

Soil salinity maps describe the status of salinity in topsoil (layer 0-50 cm) and subsoil (layer 50-100 cm), using the electrical conductivity of saturated paste extract at 25°C (dS/m). ECe values are classified according to Soil Survey Manual (1993).

These maps are a first regional-scale spatial representation derived by geo-statistical analysis on point data collected in different soil surveys.
