Soil Organic Carbon across Latin America

Predictions of soil organic carbon

Country-specific (a) and regional (b) predictions of SOC across Latin America based on a linear ensemble of methods.

A new dataset offers baseline estimates of soil organic carbon for Latin American countries.

Soil Carbon Stocks for Tidal Wetlands

soil carbon in the Mississippi River delta

Estimated soil carbon stocks (using model results) throughout the Mississippi River delta in Louisiana. Cooler colors (blues and greens) indicate higher soil carbon concentrations.

Researchers with NASA's Carbon Monitoring System estimated the amount of carbon stored in the soil in tidal wetlands of the United States.

Soil Carbon Stocks for Tidal Wetlands

Three carbon stock estimation approaches for the Louisiana Delta region

Results of three carbon stock estimation approaches for the Louisiana Delta region: Left, using independently generated soil carbon maps from SSURGO; Middle, using the SSURGO bias-corrected for bulk density; Right, using single average carbon stock value from the compiled soil core data.

Soil carbon stocks for tidal wetland areas of the United States were estimated using four modeling approaches.

Soil Moisture Datasets Become Fertile Ground for Applications
