Continental-scale measurement of the soil organic pool with climatic, edaphic, and biotic controls

Wynn, Jonathan; Bird, Michael; Vellen, Lins; Grand-Clements, Emilie; Carter, John O; Berry, Sandra Lee


We present data on soil organic carbon (SOC) inventory for 7050 soil cores collected from a wide range of environmental conditions throughout Australia. The data set is stratified over the spatial distribution of trees and grass to account for variability of SOC inventory with vegetation distribution. We model controls on SOC inventory using an index of water availability and mean annual temperature to represent the climatic control on the rate of C input into the SOC pool and decomposition of...[Show more]
