Soil repositories/archives in the world

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

ich darf euch einen Aufruf unserer amerikanischen Kollegen weiterleiten:

The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Board of Agriculture and National Resources, in collaboration with the U.S. National Committee for the International Union of Soil Sciences, is organizing a workshop entitled Exploring a Dynamic Soil Information System to be held in March 2021 ( 

As part of this work, we are constructing a list of soils repositories/soil archives in the world. Please contribute to this effort by completing this quick survey for each of the soil repositories/archives with which you are familiar at The list will be made openly accessible on the workshop's website when complete and published in the workshop’s proceedings.  

Thank you very much,
