UK Soil Observatory Launched

10th April 2014

UK Soil Observatory (UKSO) online web portal will be formally launched today (April 10th 2014). The portal represents a collobaration of a number of institutions including; the James Hutton Institute (JHI); the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI); the British Geological Survey (BGS); Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH); Cranfield University and Rothamsted Research to produce an online national and regional soil cartographic mapping, monitoring and data  resource. It is hoped that over time other institutions will also place examples of their own soils information into the portal.
