European Soil Data Centre -- Saline and Sodic Soils Map for Europe

Title European Soil Data Centre -- Saline and Sodic Soils Map for Europe 
Abstract The Saline and Sodic Soils Map shows the area distribution of saline, sodic and potentially salt affected areas within the European Union. The accuracy of input input data only allows the designation of salt affected areas with a limited level of reliability (e.g. < 50 or > 50% of the area); therefore the results represented in the map should only be used for orientating purposes.

Quality Data have been derived from the ESDB;The Saline and Sodic Soils Map shows the area distribution of saline, sodic and potentially salt affected areas within the European Union. The accuracy of input input data only allows the designation of salt affected areas with a limited level of reliability (e.g. < 50 or > 50% of the area); therefore the results represented in the map should only be used for orientating purposes.In total there are 5 categories: 1 - Saline > 50% of the area 2 - Sodic > 50% of the area 3 - Saline > 50% of the area 4 - Sodic < 50% of the area 5 - Potentially salt affected soils.
