Vegetation/Ecosystem Modeling and Analysis Project (VEMAP) Soil Properties
Entry ID: EOSWEBSTER_VEMAP_SOIL


Summary
Abstract: The soils group of the VEMAP data include the following:

Soil modes - the number of dominant (modal) soils in each VEMAP grid-cell for which soils data are available. Note that the VEMAP1 published simulations were based on the mineral soil component for modal soil 1.

Soils (mineral, organic, and total) - up to 18 variables that make up the mineral or organic component of the soil, or combined ... View entire text
