Soil Carbon and Nitrogen- Baseline Prior to GLBRC Intensive Site — GLBRC Biofuel Cropping System Experiment

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

One hundred soil samples were collected prior to setting up the GLBRC Biofuel Cropping System Experiment on the KBS GLBRC Intensive site. Samples were taken on a regular grid (20 × 100 meters) and sample coordinate locations were recorded with GPS. The sample grid included the area that soon after became the the GLBRC Biofuel Cropping System Experiment and Switchgrass Nitrogen/Harvest Experiment.

This datatable is part of the GLBRC soil properties dataset. Soil measurements from GLBRC experiments.
