Towards Best Soil Management Practices in the Alps


Sustainable Cross-sectoral Soil Management:

Case studies join mountain agriculture, tourism and water quality management sectoral approach and develop best practice for ski runs soil management. Agricultural case studies focus on soil protection activities on mountain pastures/ski areas and assess soil properties, geomorphology and natural hazards.

Soil data are interpreted and made applicable for an improved management of dual land-use mountain sites (e.g. pastures – ski slopes).

Results will be transferred into agricultural management plans and discussed with ski-area managers.
