LUCAS 2015 TOPSOIL data

Data from the 2015 LUCAS campaign soil component containing soil properties data (clay, silt and sand content, coarse fragments, pH (CaCl2 and H2O), organic carbon content, CaCO3, nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, EC (Electrical conductivity) and multispectral reflectance data for 21,859 samples. These primary data are supplemented by reference ancillary data describing a range of environmental conditions for the LUCAS Soil locations.
