Description

The World Inventory of Soil Emission Potentials (WISE) database was used to generate a series of uniform data sets of derived soil properties for each of the 106 soil units considered in the Soil Map of the World. These data sets were then used to generate GIS raster image files for the following variables: total available water capacity (mm water per 1 m soil depth); soil organic carbon density (kg C/m**2 for 0-30cm depth range); soil organic carbon density (kg C/m**2 for 0-100cm depth range); soil carbonate carbon density (kg C/m**2 for 0-100cm depth range); soil pH (0-30 cm depth range); and soil pH (30-100 cm depth range).
