Altınyunus Hotel, Hall "Denizkızı-III"
The european soil database at scale 1:1,000,000 is part of the european soil Information system (eusis). It is the resulting product of a collaborative Project involving all the european union and neighbouring countries. Now the European Commission Joint Research Centre is working on the new version of the Soil Geographical Database of Eurasia and this new version will include also other countries in North Africa, Middle East, and Caucasus. For this purpose we are contacting soil experts from mentioned countries as potential data providers and for future collaborations. In this instance we are organising a workshop to discuss about soil data from new countries, action plans and future cooperation. The meeting will be held jointly with the 8th International Soil Science Congress on “Land Degradation and Challenges in Soil Management” which will be held in Izmir/Turkey, 15-16 May 2012.
