Description

A global digital data base of soil properties is available at 1 degree longitude resolution. For each land cell, the data base includes major and associated soil units, surface texture, and slope; phase and miscellaneous land units are included where available. The data base was compiled as part of an effort to improve modeling of the hydrologic cycle in the GISS Genreal Circulation Model.
