Summary
Abstract: Dataset includes soil samples from 3 field sites, 5 treatments,
3 replications, with duplicate soil samples obtained on each
replicate. Soil sample depths have varied; initially 0 - 7.5 cm,
7.5 - 15 cm, and then by horizon. Since 1991 the A-horizon has
been sampled by 2.5 cm increments and the B-horizon is sampled
as a single sample. Dataset collected to evaluate the soil
carbon, nitrogen, and ... View entire text
