I sampled the soil quality over a wide region. However, some areas in my study area were not sampled in this survey. So, I'm wondering how can I address these areas:

A) the uncovered areas in the survey
B) the under-covered areas
C) non-covered areas

Or there is another suitable term for this. Thank you in advance!
