Soil Collections Data Sets

SOIL: The ORNL DAAC compiles, archives, and distributes data on the physical and chemical properties of soils. The data are gridded at spatial scales ranging from regional to global.

All SOIL data sets are available FREE of charge. New SOIL data sets are marked new. You will need to sign in to order SOIL data sets. Currently 24 SOIL data sets are available online.
