This data set contains soils data from the Canada Soil Information System (CanSIS) in ESRI Shapefile format for the provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. They are provided as part of the BOReal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Staff Science GIS data collection program. Attribute tables provide the various soil data for the polygons. There is one attribute table for Saskatchewan and one for Manitoba. This data product may be useful to someone who is interested in studying this area at a regional scale.

Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study: The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study was a large-scale international interdisciplinary experiment in the boreal forests of central Canada. Its focus was improving our understanding of the exchanges of radiative energy, sensible heat, water, CO2 and trace gases between the boreal forest and the lower atmosphere. A primary objective of BOREAS was to collect the data needed to improve computer simulation models of the important processes controlling these exchanges so that scientists can anticipate the effects of global change, principally altered temperature and precipitation patterns, on the biome.
