PSU 1-km Multi-Layer Soil Characteristics Dataset
Pennsylvania State University (PSU)/Earth System Science Center (ESSC) has developed a 1-km multi-layer soil characteristics dataset based on the USDA STATSGO data. The data includes STATSGO Mapunits, soil texture class, depth-to-bedrock, sand/silt/clay fractions, rock fragment class, rock fragment volume, bulk density, porosity, hydrologic soil groups, and available water capacity. This data set is available at PSU via the "download" link below.
