soil_scenario_data_EFSA_2015: Properties of the predefined scenarios from the EFSA guidance...

Description Format Source Examples

Description

Properties of the predefined scenarios used at Tier 1, Tier 2A and Tier 3A for the concentration in soil as given in the EFSA guidance (2015, p. 13/14). Also, the scenario and model adjustment factors from p. 15 and p. 17 are included.

Format

A data frame with one row for each scenario. Row names are the scenario codes, e.g. CTN for the Northern scenario for the total concentration in soil. Columns are mostly self-explanatory. rho is the dry bulk density of the top soil.
