Description

This data set provides a soil map with estimates of soil carbon (C) in g C/m2 for 20-cm layers from the surface to one meter depth for the conterminous United States.STATSGO v.1 (State Soil Geographic Database, Soil Survey Staff, 1994) data were used to estimate by 20-cm intervals to a 1-m depth the mean soil carbon for each of the STATSGO-delineated soil map units. These map units are the polygons represented in the provided Shapefile data product.
