Abstract

Soil organic matter is essential for preserving and maintaining a range of soil and ecosystem functions as well as supply and store carbon for climate change mitigation. Digital Soil Mapping techniques will be used to obtain a spatially continuous product, especially over permanently vegetated areas. Recently available satellite remote sensing data, with among other systems the Copernicus Sentinel, will be used as input for environmental covariates. Digital Soil Mapping, coupled together with Remote Sensing products, is a powerful tool to produce soil properties maps and monitoring the changes in soil conditions over time.
