Short Name:

Stocks of Surface Soil Organic Carbon Fractions, Great Plains Region, USA, 2007-2010

This dataset provides estimates of total organic soil carbon (SOC), pyrogenic (PyC), particulate (POC), and other organic soil carbon (OOC) fractions in 473 surface layer soil samples collected from stratified-sampling locations in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and Wyoming, USA. Terrain, climate, soil, fire, and land cover data used to predict and map SOC, PyC, POC, and OOC at 1 km resolution throughout the study region are also included. The estimates were derived using a best random forest regression model and cover the period 2007-05-01 to 2010-10-01.
