  • The BOREAS TGB-07 team measured the concentration and flux of several agricultural pesticides in air, rainwater, and dry deposition samples in order to determine the associated yearly deposition rates. This data set contains information on the dry deposition flux of seven herbicides [2,4-dichlorophenoxyacidic_acid (2,4-D), bromoxynil, dicamb, 2-methyl-4-chlorophenoxyacetic acid (MCPA), triallate, trifluralin, and diclop-methyl] known to appear in the atmosphere of the Canadian prairies. Also, the concentration of three herbicides (atrazine, alaclor and metolachlor), two groups of insecticides (lindane and breakdown products and dichlro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT) and breakdown products), and several polychlorinated biphenyls commonly used in the central United States were measured. All of these chemicals are reported, in the literature, to be transported in the atmosphere. Many have been reported to occur in boreal and arctic food chains. The sampling was carried out from June 16 to August 13, 1993 and May 4 to July 20, 1994 at the BOREAS site in the Prince Albert National Park (Waskesiu).

  • The Muencheberg Soil Quality Rating (SQR) was developed by the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF). SQR describes the suitability of sites under agricultural land use and helps to estimate the yield potential of sites at a global scale. This method was especially adapted for application with soil maps by the Federal Institute of Geosciences and Resources BGR and is published in the documentation of Ad-hoc-AG Boden (representing the soil experts of the geological services of the German federal states). The map shows the SQR for cropland in Germany based on the landuse stratified soilmap of Germany at scale 1:1,000,000. Climate (DWD), Relief (BKG) and landuse data (CLC2006) are used as input data in addition to the soil map. SQR consists of a series of pedotransfer rules. First, eight basic soil properties are weighted and combined to describe the soil (substrate, rooting depth, etc.). Next, hazard indicators are derived (drought risk, soil depth above solid rock). These indicators are critical for farming and limit the overall soil quality. Only those hazard indicators were selected for SQR which have the greatest effect on potential grain yield. The final SQR-score ranges from about 0 to 102 points.

  • The soil map 1:200,000 (BUEK200) is prepared by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) in cooperation with the National Geological Surveys (SGD) of the federal states in the sheet line system of the Topographic Map 1:200,000 (TUEK200) and is published in 55 individual map sheets. The digital data management provides a detailed, nationwide uniform and comprehensive information base for statements on land use and soil protection across the states. Information about the current state of processing can be found on the BGR website about soil. The soil inventories and their spatial distribution on the territory of this map sheet is described in terms of 96 legend units structured by soil regions and landscapes. Each legend unit contains soil systematic information as well as information about the soil parent material of each dominant and associated soil.
