Soil Texture, vis-NIR Spectra, and Derived Soil Chemistry



Soil texture, vis-NIR spectra and derived soil chemistry were taken from soils sampled at Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors (CHEESEHEAD) ISFS forest sites. All soil samples were taken on September 28, 2019. Samples were taken within 5 m of the tower. Tower center coordinates are used. All samples were of the top 0-15 cm of soil mixed. They were then air-dried, ground, and sieved through a 2-mm sieve for analysis. See the readme document to learn about this dataset and particle size analysis, visible–near infrared (vis–NIR), and portable X-ray fluorescence (PXRF).
