Sufficiently comprehensive mapping of acid sulphate soils and identifying loading risks posed by such soils using consistent methods, and supplementary studies on adverse effects to obtain an adequate overall view.
STATE OF IMPLEMENTATION
Completed. (All the elements of the measure have been completed both in terms of time and at all planned locations. If a measure consists of an unlimited continuum of measures, a measure can be regarded as having been completed once the first sub-measure has been completed.)
A guide has been published on the mapping and investigation of acid sulphate soils in peat production areas. The purpose of the guide is to promote the application of consistent methods and practices in studies relating to acid sulphate soils in these areas. The guide can also be used in other studies relating to acid sulphate soils carried out in the context of other types of land use.
