The map of natural soil susceptibility
to compaction was created from the evaluation of selected parameters from the
ESDB. The soil susceptibility to compaction was divided into 4 categories. Two
additional categories represent the data concerning places where this
evaluation was either not relevant or could not been provided because of lack
of information. In total there are 6 categories:
0 - no soil. This represents water
bodies, glaciers and rock outcrops
1 - low susceptibility to compaction
2. - medium susceptibility to
3. - high susceptibility to compaction
4. - very high susceptibility to
9. - no evaluation possible. This was
the case of towns including also soils, soils disturbed by man and marsh.
If getting there by car, instead of by train or bus, be generous and share the space. By taking other people who might have made their journey in a separate car, you're putting one less car on the road.
