Abstract

The Soil Management Assessment Tool (SoilMAT) is being developed as part of the soils work in the Scottish Government’s Rural, Environment Science and Analytical Services (RESAS) Division 2016 - 2021 programme.
SoilMAT can model the fate of carbon and nutrients in the soil/ plant system by predicting the response of soils to external change by environmental-drivers, e.g. land use and climate. This enables an assessment of the relationships between soils and water quality, climate change and agriculture to be made. It is envisaged that results may be used to directly inform policy and/ or planning decisions.
