Meeting on Soil Data for GEOSS  

Meeting on Soil Data for GEOSS sub-task US-09-03c

The e-SOTER partners ISRIC and JRC have drafted a sub-task sheet for the GEOSS workplan, focussing on a global soil information system. They realize that other global and regional organizations that collect or provide soil data are needed to materialize the huge task described in the sùb-task.

e-SOTER in GEO Work Plan 2009-2011  

The e-SOTER project together with partner JRC has contributed to the draft sub-task Bio-geophysical, Soil & Land Surface Data (US-09-03c) of the July 2009 version of the GEO 2009-2011 Work Plan. It will support the development of a Global Soil Observing System and incorporate the various existing regional SOTER initiatives into a coherent system for soil data. It will provide harmonized and policy-relevant information to users at the regional and national levels. As the European contribution to a Global Soil Observing System, e-SOTER will deliver a web-based regional pilot platform with data, methodologies, and applications, using remote sensing to validate, augment and extend existing data.

Kick-off meeting  

The kick-off meeting has been held at ISRIC, Wageningen, from  11 to 12 September, 2008. Participants were: the project consortium partners, the EC project officer as well as external advisors.
