The monolith is from the same Chernozem that starts the “World of Soils” picture collection of IUSS. This Chernozem has been nominated also as the national soil of Hungary, when the country performed the presidency semester of the EU. All countries and or states are encouraged to send their national or state soil pictures with short description to the World of Soils collection .
