Tellus Soil Sampling

Our soil sampling survey across the Greater Dublin Area (G8 block)  was completed in August, 2021. Following its completion, the soil sampling teams moved to South East Ireland, working in parts of counties Carlow, Laois, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford and Wicklow. Soil samples obtained will be about 1 kg in weight and will be taken to a maximum depth of 50 cm. All samples will be analysed for a range of geochemical elements and the information will be made freely available. 

The Tellus soil sampling survey will not take place during 2022. Details for the 2023 survey season are due to be announced next spring.
