The global soil dataset for earth system modeling (2014)


The source data for this dataset is derived from world soil maps and multiple regional and national soil databases, including soil attributes and soil maps. We have adopted a unified data structure and data processing process to fuse diverse data. We then used the soil type connection method and the soil variable line connection method to obtain the spatial distribution of soil properties. To aggregate these data, we currently use the area weighting method. The raw data has a resolution of 30 seconds, and aggregated data with a 5-minute resolution (about 10km) is provided here. There are eight vertical layers with a maximum depth of 2.3 meters (ie 0- 0.045, 0.045- 0.091, 0.091- 0.166, 0.166- 0.289, 0.289- 0.493, 0.493- 0.829, 0.829- 1.383 and 1.383- 2.296 m).
