L 05-Soil Survey of a Selected Study Area in Somaliland: This report contains information on the spatial variability of soils in a 12,939 km2 study area in Somaliland. Soil attributes of the main soil types represented by 81 soil profiles are described. A soil map was produced at 1:100,000 and 1:50,000 scales, showing the spatial variability of all the soil attributes. A technical assessment of the main soil attributes is also available, hence different users may use this information for different applications. . Download file (8.3 MB)
