Global Soil Data Products CD-ROM Contents (IGBP-DIS)

This data set contains global data on soil properties, global maps of soil distributions, and the SoilData System developed by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme Data and Information System (IGBP-DIS). These data were originally distributed on CD-ROM, but are provided here as a single zip file. The SoilData System allows users to generate soil information and maps for geographic regions at soil depths and resolutions selected by the user. Derived surfaces of carbon density, nutrient status, water-holding capacity, and heat capacity are provided for modeling and inventory purposes.
