WorldSoil aims at developing, in close cooperation with users and stakeholders, a global Earth Observation-Soil Monitoring System (EO-SMS) on a suitable cloud environment utilizing open source and information available from operational, in situ and reference data and additional variables and/or indices derived from EO data together with blending and modelling techniques.
The development shall be based on monitoring top soil organic carbon and implemented in a modular way allowing its future extension to additional soil indices.
It is anticipated that an EO-SMS will provide essential baseline information for manifold downstream research, institutional and commercial applications as e.g. for the implementation of urgently needed soil management systems and as such supporting national and international policy making and monitoring.
