 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The multidisciplinary DIGISOIL consortium intends to integrate and improve in situ and proximal measurement technologies for the assessment of soil properties assessment and soil degradation indicators, going from the sensing technologies to their integration and their application in (digital) soil mapping (DSM). In addition, our SMEs experience will allow to take into account the feasibility of such developments based on economical constraints, reliability of the results and needs of the DSM community. In order to assess and prevent soil degradation and to benefit from the different ecological, economical and historical functions of the soil in a sustainable way, there is an obvious need for high resolution and accurate maps of soil properties. The core objective of the project is to explore and exploit new capabilities of advanced geophysical technologies for answering this societal demand. To this aim, DIGISOIL addresses four issues covering technological, soil science and economic aspects: (i) the validation of geophysical (in situ, proximal and airborne) technologies and integrated pedo-geophysical inversion techniques (mechanistic data fusion) (ii) the relation between the geophysical parameters and the soil properties, (iii) the integration of the derived soil properties for mapping soil functions and soil threats, (iv) the evaluation, standardisation and sub-industrialization of the proposed methodologies, including technical and economical studies.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Good quality soil plays an important role in economics and ecology. For this reason, the EU has sponsored research into measuring and preventing soil degradation.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Scientists have identified a need to assess the properties of soil in order to preserve it for agricultural activities and ecosystems. To do this in as much detail as possible, they need to use the latest mapping technologies.

In response to this need, the EU funded the 'Integrated system of data collection technologies for mapping soil properties' (Digisoil) project. The consortium was tasked with finding the best of such available technologies.

The team started by identifying geophysical sensors which could be adapted for digital soil mapping (DSM). However, data from individual sensors are only estimations, so Digisoil developed a method to integrate the data from several indicators. This ensures a far more accurate diagnosis of soil properties, threats and functions.

The consortium has also written a guide for users to exploit the new Digisoil mapping tool and their work has been presented at conferences. In addition, they have published their results in various international scientific publications.

A survey is currently being performed to evaluate the feasibility of the tool in terms of the affordability and technical needs of end users.

The next step will be more business and technology development as well as economic studies, to ensure that Digisoil products are commercially viable. Future projects will be geared toward creating operational prototypes.
