Description:
Abstract:
The Soil and Terrain database for the Upper Tana River Catchment (version 1.1) (SOTER_UT_v1.1) at scale 1:250,000 was compiled to support the Green Water Credits (GWC) programme by creating a primary SOTER dataset for a hydrology assessment of the basin. The Kenya Soil Survey of the Kenya Agriculture Research Institute(KARI-KSS) and ISRIC-World Soil Information compiled the SOTER_UT dataset according to the standard SOTER methodology. The dataset includes both data of the original KENSOTER database (1:1M) for the Upper Tana Catchment and, new SOTER units and soil profile data taken from other, existing soil surveys mainly at scale 100,000 and from more detailed studies. The SOTER database was used for the hydrology assessment of Upper Tana basin using the model Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT)to quantify the impact of land management practices change in the basin's waterbalance.

Access_Constraints: ISRIC - World Soil Information is pleased to make available a range of soil geographic and attribute data. Our databases were compiled using uniform methods (e.g., ISIS, SOTER, WISE). Strict quality-control measures were applied in developing the various databases but ISRIC does not warrant that the data are error free. Incomplete characterization data were available for many soil profiles because only selected measurements were undertaken during the original surveys. You are welcome to use the databases but you should be aware that the assessment of the accuracy and applicability of each dataset is strictly a USER RESPONSIBILITY; ISRIC takes no responsibility for problems that may arise from use of the databases. ISRIC requests you to acknowledge use of our data. This allows us to gauge the interest and usefulness of our services. Please refer to the data set documentation for suggested form of acknowledgement and citation. We kindly request that you send us two reprints of any publication that uses data received from ISRIC - World Soil Information. This will help us to determine the type and level of use of the data we distribute.
