Short description: Soil Atlas of Europe : Atlas Contents, Key facts, Printouts, Commission Preface and information on how to obtain copy of the Atlas. The Soil Atlas of Europe is the result of a collective effort by more the 40 National soil surveys and soil science institutions cooperating across Europe within the European Soil Bureau Network (ESBN). Soil Atlas of Africa: The Institute for Environment and Sustainability of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, and ISRIC – World Soil Information intend to produce a Soil Atlas of Africa, similar to the Soil Atlas of Europe. To have the highest impact possible, we would like to ask potential users for ideas and needs about the contents of this atlas. Soil Atlas of the Northern Circumpolar Region: The Institute for Environment and Sustainability of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission leads a project which has an affiliation with International Polar Year. The Atlas of Northern Circumpolar Soil will be the first document of its kind to bringing together soil data for all the northern countries in a style designed to better understand and protect soil resources in these areas.
