The second Scottish Climate Change Adaptation Programme (SCCAP) identifies soil health as a priority research area to support sustainable soil management and ecosystem services. This follows concerns over a perceived lack of data or gaps in understanding that have been raised in both independent assessments of the first SCCAP by the Committee on Climate Change. The aim of this study is to summarise previous work on Scottish soils, explore existing datasets, and identify those metrics which could support the monitoring of Scotland’s soil health and measure the vulnerability of Scottish soils to climate change in future.
