Video on soil compaction from RECARE Danish Case Study

A video from an event held at the RECARE Danish Case Study on techniques to minimise soil compaction is now available to watch here.  The video is narrated by Per Schjønning, the Case Study leader, who explains some of the causes of soil compaction and the work of the RECARE project in finding solutions to minimise this soil threat.  The video is in Danish with English subtitles

RECARE research presented at JRC Soil erosion modelling workhsop

Workshop200x120

A number of RECARE partners presented at the Soil Erosion Modelling Workshop, run by Joint Research Centre (JRC), in Ispira, Italy between 20th to 22nd March 2017.  The aim of the workshop was to discuss how local/regional modeling results can be upscaled (or applied) to the European scale. The workshop also served as a follow-up to recent JRC modelling developments and published maps for soil erosion by water and wind. The workshop focused on how various projects or local/regional modelling applications can improve the “know-how” at European scale, with emphasis given to management practices that can reduce soil erosion.

Jan Jacob Keizer, from the University of Aveiro, Portugal gave a presentation about the effectiveness of mulching with forest logging residues to reduce post-fire erosion: combined evidence from laboratory and field studies drawing on the RECARE case study experiments.  Hedwig van Delden, from Research Institute for Knowledge Systems (RIKS), Netherlands presented on Modelling the impacts of European policies on preventing and mitigating soil threats.  She discussed the development of the RECARE Integrated Assessment Model which aims to assess the impact of different external factors, policy options and management options on a number of (ecosystem service) indicators relevant to the range of soil threats.
