Soil types in western Romania
The provided geodata contain the digitized areas covered by loess and loess-like sediments in Hungary (after Balogh et al. 1956) and the respective coverage in the border region of northwest Romania which has been derived from geoscientific maps and data: soil type and texture after Florea et al. (1971), land cover data after CLC 2006 published by EEA (2012) and geomorphometric data based on the DEM SRTM 1 Arc-Second Global provided by USGS (2015)). Therefrom, digitized and reclassified soil types after the Romanian soil map, and two raster datasets of derived morphometric indices are published. Additionally, a merged shapefile of the resulting loess and loess-like sediments, designed for a scale of about 1:500.000, is published.
Digitized and reclassified soil types after the Romanian soil map (Florea et al. 1971) for the border region of northwest Romania. The reclassification is based on a conversion to the terminology of the WRB system after Vlad et al. (2012). The denotation of the soil types is compiled in Tab. 1.
