European Data

The European Soil Data Centre makes available the Maps of Organic carbon content (%) in the surface horizon of soils in Europe. The data are in ESRI GRID format and are available as an ASCII raster file or in native ESRI GRID format. n ESRI GRID format (also in INSPIRE Raster) and are available as a interchange file or in native format. Fill this online form ; after which you will be provided with instructions on how to download the data.

(June 2010) Download the Organic Carbon per Country (peta grams or giga tons) (Excel Format).

The result is available as a map and an explaining booklet: The Map of Organic Carbon Content In Topsoils In Europe: Version 1.2 September - 2003 (S.P.I.04.72) . Robert J.A.
