Abstract
This respository contains the R code and the input data with the parameter settings for modelling soil depth in the Alps and in the Medierranian.The R script works with a small sample of the whole dataset. If computation of the full dataset takes too long on a desktop computer please contact curdon for a faster code, that applies an approximation.
