Regionally representative selection of soil samples for an environmental specimen bank with particular reference to loess soils in Loess (INQUA).

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Digital evaluation of a series of correlative geo-scientific maps in different scales and subsequent multivariate data processing in the form of entropy and neighbourhood analyses are the basis of a comparative selection of soil samples for the environmental bank of the Federal Republic of Germany. By means of regionalisation algorithms the optimum location of sampling points was determined and the result corroborated on large scale maps or by visual inspection. In addition an index of representativity was defined, grouping soil taxa in terms of acreage and spatial autocorrelation
