SOTER-based soil parameter estimates for Jordan (ver. 1.0)
Entry ID: ISRIC_SOTWISjordan

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This harmonized set of soil parameter estimates has been developed using an updated 1:500 000 scale Soil and Terrain (SOTER) Database for Jordan. The associated soil analytical data were derived from soil survey reports. These sources seldom hold all the physical and chemical attributes ideally required by SOTER. Gaps in the measured soil profile data have been filled using a step-wise procedure that uses taxotransfer rules, based on about 9600 soil profiles held in the WISE database, complemented with expert-rules. Nineteeen parameter estimates are presented by soil unit for fixed depth intervals of 0.2 m to 1 m depth.
