Topsoil & Agricultural Economic Losses

Map of study area for dataset.

Study area in the Midwestern US with study site locations and extent of analysis. The study area was limited to the spatial extent of LiDAR topographic data (gray hillshade). Squares represent the 28 sites, a total of 210 km2, that were selected for having plowed, bare soil.

A soil organic carbon index and remote sensing data were used to estimate erosion in Midwestern USA.
