    The Corine Land Cover datasets CLC2000, CLC2006and CLC change 2000-2006areproduced within the frame of the GMES land monitoringproject.Corine Land Cover (CLC) provides consistent information on land cover and land cover changes across Europe. This inventory was initiated in 1985 (reference year 1990) and established a time series of land cover information with updates in 2000 and 2006.CLC products are based on photointerpretation of satellite images by national teams of participating countries - the EEA member and cooperating countries – following a standard methodology and nomenclature with the following base parameters: 44 classes in the hierarchical three level Corine nomenclature; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for status layers is 25 hectares; minimum width of linear elements is 100 metres; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for Land Cover Changes (LCC) for the change layers is 5 hectares. The resulting national land cover inventories are further integrated into a seamless land cover map of Europe.Land cover and land use (LCLU) information is important not only for land change research, but also more broadly for the monitoring of environmental change, policy support, the creation of environmental indicators and reporting. CLC datasets provide important datasets supporting the implementation of key priority areas of the Environment Action Programmes of the European Union as protecting ecosystems, halting the loss of biological diversity, tracking the impacts of climate change, assessing developments in agriculture and implementing the EU Water Framework Directive, among others.More about the Corine Land Cover (CLC) and Copernicus land monitoring data in general can be found at http://land.copernicus.eu/.

    Corine Land Cover (CLC) 2018 and CLC change 2012-2018 are two of the datasets produced within the frame of the Initial Operations of the Copernicus programme (the European Earth monitoring programme previously known as GMES) on land monitoring.Corine Land Cover (CLC) provides consistent information on land cover and land cover changes across Europe. This inventory was initiated in 1985 (reference year 1990) and established a time series of land cover information with updates in 2000, 2006. 2012 and now 2018. CLC products are based on photointerpretation of satellite images by national teams of participating countries - the EEA member and cooperating countries – following a standard methodology and nomenclature with the following base parameters: 44 classes in the hierarchical three level Corine nomenclature; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for status layers is 25 hectares; minimum width of linear elements is 100 metres; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for Land Cover Changes (LCC) for the change layers is 5 hectares.

    Riparian zones represent transitional areas occurring between land and freshwater ecosystems, characterised by distinctive hydrology, soil and biotic conditions and strongly influenced by the stream water. They provide a wide range of riparian functions (e.g. chemical filtration, flood control, bank stabilization, aquatic life and riparian wildlife support, etc.) and ecosystem services. The Riparian Zones products will support the objectives of several European legal acts and policy initiatives, such as the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020, the Habitats and Birds Directives and the Water Framework Directive. Land Cover/Land Use (LC/LU) classification is tailored to the needs of biodiversity monitoring in a tailored buffer zone along large and medium-sized European rivers (with Strahler levels 3-8 derived from EU-Hydro). LC/LU is extracted from VHR satellite data and other available data in a buffer zone of selected rivers. The classes follow the pre-defined nomenclature on the basis of MAES typology of ecosystems (Level 1 to Level 4) and Corine Land Cover, providing 80 distinct thematic classes with a Minimum Mapping Unit (MMU) of 0.5 ha and a Minimum Mapping Width (MMW) of 10 m. The production of the Riparian Zones products was coordinated by the European Environment Agency in the frame of the EU Copernicus programme.

    Íslenskur jarðvegur telst til eldfjallajarðar (Andosol) að langmestum hluta, en eldfjallajörð er jarðvegur sem myndast á eldvirkum svæðum heimsins. Eldfjallajörð hefur afar sérstæða eiginleika sem greina hana frá öðrum jarðvegsgerðum. Útbúin var einföld flokkun fyrir íslenskan jarðveg, sem m.a. byggist á alþjóðlegum flokkunarkerfum en einnig á vinnu Björns Jóhannessonar og Þorsteins Guðmundssonar. Flokkunin gerir greinarmun á i) jarðvegi auðna (glerjörð sem skiptist í melajörð, malarjörð, sandjörð og vikurjörð; ii) jarðvegi gróins lands með sortueiginleika (sortujörð, sem skiptist í brúnjörð, votjörð og svartjörð), iii) lífrænni mójörð og að síðustu iv) öðrum jarðvegi sem er margvíslegur að gerð. Í síðasta flokknum er bergjörð útbreiddust, en auk þess má nefna frerajörð sífrerasvæða og kalkjörð. Jarðvegskortið var unnið á grundvelli sniða og jarðvegssýna sem safnað hefur verið víða um landið. Kortið er á vektora formi og í mælikvarða 1:500 000. Það er m.a. hluti evrópska jarðvegskortsins. A soil map of Iceland: The Soil map classification separates between; 1) andic soils, which are Brown Andosols, Gleyic Andosols and Histic Andosols; 2) Vitrisols, soils of deserts, which are divided into Cambic Vitrisols, Gravelly Vitrisols, Arenic Vitrisols and Pumice Vitrisols iii) Histosols, and iv) other soil types such as Cryosols and Leptosols. The classification system is in part based on WRB system and Soil Taxonomy and earlier work by Björn Jóhannesson and Þorsteinn Guðmundsson (see English Summary and 1. table in http://www.moldin.net/uploads/3/9/3/3/39332633/jardvegskort_2.pdf). The map is in a coarse scale (1:500 000) and is not intended to use for particular points on the landscape. It is rather an overview. It has been incorporated into the EU soil database and the Circumpolar soil map.
