This set of soils data consists of mineral depth, and three layers each of sand, clay, and rock fragment fractions. The soils data were obtained from Kern (2000), using methodology from Kern (1995) with corrected inconsistencies and gap filling from NRCS (1994).

The Vegetation/Ecosystem Modeling and Analysis Project (VEMAP) was a multi-institutional, international effort that addressed the response of biogeography and biogeochemistry to environmental variability in climate and other drivers in both space and time domains. The objectives of VEMAP were to study the intercomparison of biogeochemistry models and vegetationtype distribution models (biogeography models) and determine their sensitivity to changing climate, elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, and other sources of altered forcing. Soil properties were based on a 10-km gridded EPA soil database developed by Kern (1994, 1995). Two soil coverages are provided in the Kern data set: one from the USDA...

Clay percentage was summarized from SSURGO and STATSGO tabular data, joined to source feature data from the NRCS, and then converted to an 800m raster using the cell center to assign the values. This data set is a digital soil survey and generally is the most detailed level of soil geographic data developed by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. The information was prepared by digitizing maps, by compiling information onto a planimetric correct base and digitizing, or by revising digitized maps using remotely sensed and other information. This data set consists of georeferenced digital map data and computerized attribute data. The map data are in a soil survey area extent format and include a detailed, field verified...

This dataset represents the soil texture from SSURGO and STATSGO soil descriptions for soil map units in the state of western Oregon that lie within the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative. Soil texture is the mineral particle size distribution of soil particles within a soil horizon. This dataset also documents rock fragments and organic matter that may contribute to water infiltration, storage and relocation within the surface horizons of the soil profile. For reference, see NRCS soil texture triangle: http://soils.usda.gov/technical/aids/investigations/texture/

This file contains soil data for 3 depths (0-0.5 meters, 0.5-1.5 meters, and greater than 1.5 meters) for percent sand, clay, and rockiness for the entire globe at a half degree grid resolution. A single bulk density value and mineral depth are also provided for each gridcell. Bulk density values came from the the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme (IGBP). Mineral depth, clay, sand, and rockiness values came from the International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP).
