  1. FOREST FOCUS (EC regulation n° 2152/2003) INTENTION: BIOSOILS to broaden the scope of the monitoring scheme to new environmental issues such as soilsand forest biodiversity (Article 6: demonstration projects)

  2. Demonstration ProjectFurther development of soil and biodiversity monitoring (Standing Forestry Committee – 22/10/2004) Soil Module Comes close to a new survey Will be used to test the recently updated ICP Forests manual 85th Standing Forestry Committee

  3. Background • 1stForest Soil Condition Database 1985-1998 5,289 Level I plots in 28 Countries Limitations: • 58 % overlap with Crown Condition dbase • Only limited number of plots with complete mandatory dataset • No possibilities for element pools calculation (limited depths and bulk densities missing)

  4. Background Soil data quality: • Transnational comparability of data limited • Missingpedological information (soil and site description) to allow for integrity checks First step: Update of ICP Forest Manual on ‘Sampling and Analysis of Soil’ Part IIIa (2003) • Level II soil condition: soil chemistry Characterised from 1995 onwards

  5. Major Objectives Complete and Improve the quality of Forest Soil Condition Database (Level I and II) • Improve overlay with Crown Condition database on 4635 plots within EU25 (2003) – 5915 plots (30 countries) • Complete (updated) set of mandatory parameters on all Level I plots – optional parameters desirable • Createdata compatibilityimportant for other European objectives (e.g. EU Thematic Soil Strategy) • Monitor changes in soil chemistryafter 10 years • Testing of updated manual and other QA/QC efforts

  6. Time schedule

  7. Actors • Co-ordination by Forest Soil Co-ordinating Centre in close co-operation with JRC • Survey and soil analyses by MS’s • Subset of samples and parameters analysed by central laboratory • After completion database => JRC and DG ENV

  8. Cost estimate per plot:sampling and analyses

  9. Cost estimates • Costs partly depend on: • Level I and/or Level II plots? • about 4800 Level I and 750Level II • All plots or subset? • Mandatory or mandatory and optional parameters (see ICP Forests manual)? • Include soil profile descriptions and related laboratory analyses?

  10. Scenario 1:Mandatory param. all level I and II plots

  11. Scenario 2: Level I: Mand. param. all, Optional subsetLevel II: Mand. & Option. subset

  12. Planning FSEP workshop on QA/QC29-30 November 2004 initially meant for limited N° experts New invitation, new programme:

  13. Monday 29 Nov ‘04 8:30 – 12:30: QA/QC in the field 14:00 – 17:30: QA/QC in the laboratory Tuesday 30 Nov ‘04 • Proposal of demonstration project: • Content: What and how? Which scenario? • Timing: When? • Role of the MS, JRC, FSCC: Who? • Structure of national programmes
