|Abstract:||The design of synoptic monitoring strategies for soils is usually strongly influenced by the need to be representative of large areas. This can result in less attention being paid to estimating analytical error leading to uncertainty of results. To understand the relative benefits of intensive and extensive monitoring of soils, sampling was carried out at different resolutions and using different sampling strategies in an area of North Italy  (Pavia Province, Lombardy). A sampling strategy that incorporated an estimation of measurement uncertainty, was found preferable to more extensive sampling without estimation of overall measurement quality. A soil monitoring system should incorporate estimates of uncertainty from all sources including the primary sampling, sample preparation and chemical analysis. It must also include contributions from systematic errors rather than from random errors alone.|
