Soil physical schematisation of the Netherlands

To implement their policy(cost) effectively, polder boards need reliable and realistic models.

Themes such as land use, drought, fertilizer and pesticide policy gave rise to a soil physical schematization of the Netherlands. Until now, a schematization dating from 1988 is used and it is outdated.

The aim of this project is the preparation of a soil physical schematization by a partnership of the Water Valley and Eem, Hoogheemraadschap The Stichtse Rijnlanden and Alterra.
