Abstract:
One of the threats to groundwater is the leaching of pesticides. A major factor determining the migration of most pesticides in soil is their organic matter content. Using classification criteria, data on organic matter content in European and American soil profiles are described, and common knowledge from textbooks, the organic matter content of the topsoil (upper 30 cm) for each soil unit occurring on the European part of the World Soil Map has been estimated. Outlined are the assumptions used to estimate the organic matter content for soil units and subunits, and the data and references on which these assumptions are based. The results are presented as the Soil Organic Matter Map of Europe (scale 1 : 20 000 000). Recommendations for future improvements are also discussed.
