Project: A web-based application to predict hydrophysical properties of soils in Lower Congo for sustainable land management

project duration
01-OCT-08 – 30-SEP-12
The existing soil database of Lower Congo will be digitised and transformed to a webbased application. The database will be extended with data on hydrophysical soil properties. The database is then used to develop pedotransfer functions (PTFs) to predict hydrophysical properties of Lower Congo soils. Scenario studies demonstrate how PTFs can improve land management planning.
