The soil on old surfaces (those exposed to weathering for long periods of time) and in particular the salt deposits expected to occur within these soils was investigated in the Darwin Glacier region ...
Moraines in the Asgard Range were cored to look for buried soils and other evidence of ice movement at an earlier period in the history of the valley system. A posthole borer was used to drill holes ...
The soils on high level surfaces in Victoria Land were examined for evidence of deposition origin. The areas visited include New Harbour, the Wright Valley, several valleys in the Western Asgard Range, ...
The soil development in the Ellsworth Mountains was studied to investigate the distribution and chemistry of the salts within the soil, the nature of the chemical weathering processes in the soils, ...
The properties of the soils in the Walcott Bay/Brown Peninsula area was investigated (i.e. degree of soil weathering, nutrient contents, etc) to help determine if this is a source area for materials ...
Soils in the Ross Sea Region were investigated for evidence of any soil processes operating in Antarctica. Two field seasons were used to sample and investigate the region. Sites visited in the first ...
We sampled a chronosequence of soils on moraines in the Darwin Mountains ranging from early Holocene (10 ky) to mid Quaternary (ca 900 ky) in age to test if the structure and diversity of microbial ...
This dataset includes a complete project/pedigree file (mandatory); standard
coverage for the soil theme (mandatory), may include hydro theme (for base

The exact origin of the Morrow plots on the campus of the University
of Illinois is obscure, but they are reputed to be the oldest
continuous agronomic research study in the USA. Some evidence
This experiment began in 1975 at a cool temperate site with brown
calcereous, slightly hydromorphic soil. Before the experiment began
the soil had been cultivated for at least 20 years according to ...
This web site allows users to stipulate the criteria they are

and climate on changes in surface residue cover, surface
roughness, and ...
The Terrain Geophysics Section of the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) owns
and operates "slim hole" geophysical sondes and recording equipment for use in
PVC-cased boreholes in unconsolidated overburden. ...
CONUS-SOIL is a multi-layer soil characteristics data set for the conterminous
United States which has been specifically designed for regional and
continental-scale climate, hydrology, and ecosystem ...
The European Soil Database (ESDB) is the main source of information from which
most other data information and services are derived. For instance, the
European Soil Database v2 Raster Library contains ...
The energy exchange between soil and atmosphere in polar summer regions is an
efficient process to thawing active layer. In this project we have controlled
different meteorological (air ...

This database contains summary information on 168 Canadian flood disasters that
occurred between 1900 and June 1997. The database is not, by any means, a
complete list of flood events in Canada since ...
This project identified soil landscapes in the conterminous United States where
ground-penetrating radar (GPR) applications in the upper meter of soil are
likely to be successful and provided a more ...
