ESQI is a qualitative multi-attribute model that calculates an index of
soil quality relative to a selected standard soil condition. Soil quality
is a largely subjective state related to the soil being "fit for
purpose". We have taken this to be a relative degree of excelency
(dependent on soil type and land-use context), so ESQI computes soil
quality relative to a standard soil condition, which is denoted by
"medium" values of attributes. For further reference see
This model was developed as part of the
ECOGEN project by
Jacqueline Thompson, and
Paul H. Krogh.
