DescriptionThe Swedish Forest Soil (MI) Inventory carries out long-term monitoring on the permanent sample plots of the Swedish National Forest Inventory (NFI). The two programmes are joined in the cooperation within the Riksinventeringen av skog (RIS; Swedish National Inventory of Forests). However, each programme (MI and NFI) has its own scientific responsibility while field work is integrated. Included in the MI are: A general site description of the plot and the site location, including e.g. general hydrological conditions, typical soil depth, etc.; A determination of soil physical conditions and soil types; Sampling of organic and mineral soil horizons for subsequent chemical analyses. A summary about MI is available in English. Results from the MI are available from the MarkInfo information system <>.
