In Germany, the AI4SoilHealth project connects with Terrestrial Environmental Observatories (TERENO) to obtain data from relevant legacy time periods as well as during the project lifespan (2023 – 2026). Unlike other sites, AI4SoilHealth is not retrieving additional data in Germany but is instead partnering with this national dataset. 



(TERENO) is an Earth Observatory (EO) that extends from the North German lowlands to the Bavarian Alps. This unique large-scale project aims to catalogue the long-term ecological, social, and economic impact of global change at regional level. Most of Germany has temperate brown and deep brown soils with their formation dependent on gradient, hydrologic conditions, vegetation, and human intervention. The sandy soils in the north are mainly podzols.
