Soil monitoring programmes past and present

G-BASE sampling

We have been monitoring soils since the beginning of the last century, with many years of research experience, collecting tens of thousands of soil samples and performing hundreds of different analytical methods. This represents millions of pounds of research investment and has created a powerful data resource for soil research in the United Kingdom and Europe. We are all working to make more of our datasets readily visible and accessible through the UKSO and will be adding further downloadable data content as it becomes available.

We encourage everyone to explore the research materials available on the UKSO. If you create something new and innovative that could benefit others, please contact the relevant UKSO partner(s).
