SOTER-based soil parameter estimates for Brazil (ver. 1.0)
Entry ID: ISRIC_SOTWISbrazil

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset presents harmonized soil parameter estimates for Brazil. The 1:5M scale Soil and Terrain Database for Latin America and the Caribbean (FAO et al. 1998), provided the basis for the current study. The data set has been prepared for the project on &Assessment of soil organic carbon stocks and change at national scale& (GEF-SOC), which has the Brazilian Amazon as one of its four case ...
