New measurements exploiting UKCEH’s unique resources
- Long term national soil survey locations with known land use change and soil properties
- Network of transition sites working closely with a range of national partners (Forest Research; Aberdeen; JHI, etc.)
- Long term experiments (UKCEH and external partners).
Measurements to 1m depth
- A range of soil biological, physical and chemical measurements
- Linked vegetation characteristics (e.g. Net Primary Productivity and rooting traits).
Next generation of experiments and tools
- Isotopes, drones, earth observation.
Opportunities for wider community
- Potential for shared, co-located soil and vegetation studies to improve understanding in areas with poor consensus (e.g. below-ground carbon allocation, soil community impacts)
- Soil and vegetation data from SOC-D research sites and the UK-SCAPE soil monitoring network
- Access to UKCEH Soil Archive resources.
