This dataset provides estimates of total organic soil carbon (SOC), pyrogenic (PyC), particulate (POC), and other organic soil carbon (OOC) fractions at 1 km resolution across Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and Wyoming, USA.

The central objective of the North American Carbon Program (NACP) is to measure and understand the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and carbon monoxide (CO) in North America and adjacent ocean regions.
