Summary

This dataset “Broad-scale assessment of biophysical features in Colorado: Soil salinity using electrical conductance” presents information extracted from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) gridded surface soils geographic database (gSSURGO). Fields retained and presented here include map unit (MU) codes and component (COMP) codes that may be used to reference records in the original, NRCS, data. Soil salinity is typically measured and evaluated based on electrical conductance (EC), and values presented here include the representative value for the map unit component (ECR) and the highest estimated value (ECH). Soils with high salinity can affect the composition of vegetation and can limit production of plants through [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this dataset is to provide geospatial information on soil salinity in Colorado. These data were compiled and synthesized to provide biological and physical information about lands in Colorado for use in conducting an environmental analysis of the potential effects of actions under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
