Description

This dataset contains properties of soil core samples for herbaceous wetlands collected in the Atchafalaya and Terrebonne basins in southeastern coastal Louisiana during 2021-03-19 to 2021-04-02 and on 2021-08-19. Field measurements were conducted at six sites in the Atchafalaya (N = 3) and Terrebonne (N = 3). Five of the sites were adjacent to sites from the Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS). The other site is in the Wax Lake Delta (WLD) without appropriate adjacent CRMS sites. Herbaceous wetland sites in both basins were chosen to represent a salinity gradient including freshwater, brackish and saline ecosystems. Soil properties include bulk density, organic matter content, and total densities of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus.
