  • The map of Soil compaction susceptibility of soils in Germany gives an overview of the exposure of arable land to soil compaction. It shows the area of soils which are threatened by soil compaction at 35 cm depth. The map is only valid at pF 1.8. The landuse stratified soil map of Germany at scale 1:1,000,000 was used as pedological input to the model.

  • The map series General Geological Map of the Federal Republic of Germany 1:200,000 (GÜK200) is the result of cooperation between the State Geological Surveys of the Federal Republic of Germany (SGD), the Geological Surveys of neighbouring countries and the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR). The GÜK200 displays the surface geology of Germany and adjacent areas of neighbouring countries on 55 map sheets. The map sheets show the regional dissemination of more than 3800 geological units. The geological units contain information on stratigraphy (age), genesis and petrography (composition) of the rocks.

  • The map shows in a generalized form the distribution of groundwater resources in Germany, based on the yields of existing waterworks or potential yields derived from this data. Five yield levels have been classified, indicating a ranking of the groundwater resources in their importance for the drinking water supply. In addition to areas with significant or less significant resources, areas in which no contiguous and regionally significant groundwater resources are available or expected are presented. The regionally significant groundwater resources are further subdivided into subclasses of roughly quantified yields. The map is based on a publication of the BGR (Vierhuff, H., Müller, W. & Aust, H. 1981), which was extended to the territory of the new federal states (Müller, A. 1993).

  • The Potential Wind Erosion Risk map gives an overview of the exposure of arable soils to soil loss due to deflation in Germany. It is based on pedological and climatic factors. The method to predict the soil erosion risk is published in the DIN 19706:2002 and in the documentation of Ad-hoc-AG Boden (representing the soil experts of the geological services of the German federal states). For the application with soil maps, the method was adapted by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR).The land use stratified soil map of Germany at scale 1:1,000,000 was used as pedological input to the model. The mean annual wind speed at 10 meters above ground level of the period 1980-2000 (DWD) is used as well. The land use information is derived from CORINE land cover data set (2006).

  • The map of the soil depth gives an overview of the rooting capacity of German soils. The soil depth is derived from profile data of the landuse stratified soil map of Germany at scale 1:1,000,000. The lower limit of a soil is bedrock or a groundwater influenced horizon. The method is derived from Bodenkundliche Kartieranleitung KA5 (2005) and is documented in the MethodenWIKI of the FISBo BGR. The land use information is derived from the CORINE Land Cover data set (2006).

  • The point map (WMS) shows samples of the BGR-petroleum archive, which are stored at the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR). The map contains drill sites and selected information on the well including well names and NIBIS-well identifiers (NIBIS Kartenserver des Landesamtes für Bergbau und Geologie Niedersachsens). Petroleum samples are stored in different quantities and are usually stored cool. For many of the samples geochemical data are available at BGR like relative amounts of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, isotopic compositions of individual fractions (delta13C) as well as ratios of selected aliphatic hydrocarbons and biomarkers (particularly steranes and hopanes). Samples and data are stored for internal use only due to legal issues. BGR may help with making a contact.

  • The map of the effective rooting depth gives an overview of the rooting capacity of German soils. The effective rooting depth is the size of the soil reservoir that the plant can reach to get water in years of drought. The effective rooting depth is determined by both crop and soil properties. The rooting depth is derived from profile data of the landuse stratified soil map of Germany at scale 1:1,000,000. The method is taken from Bodenkundliche Kartieranleitung KA4 (1994) and is documented in the Methoden-WIKI of the FISBo BGR. The land use information is derived from the CORINE Land Cover data set (2006).

  • The map of the plant available water in Germany gives an overview of the amount of water which is available for plant growth in the summer period (April – September). It is the sum of the available water holding capacity of soils the precipitation in summer and the amount of capillary rise. The map was made on the basis of the land use stratified soil map of Germany at a scale of 1:1,1000,000, climate data for the period of 1961–1990 and land use information is derived from the Corine Land Cover data set (2006). The method is part of the TUB_BGR approach to model seepage water and is published in the documentation of Ad-hoc-AG Boden (representing the soil experts of the geological services of the German federal states).
