Black Carbon and related environmental data for fate and transport

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

We determined soil hydrology, soil carbon pools (organic carbon, black carbon, and inorganic carbon) from urban soil assessments (surface and sub-surface horizons) carried out in the core areas of eleven cities in the United States. We used both ordinary least squares and non-parametric CART methods to discern trends in BC concentrations with regard to soil, landscape, and emission metrics.

This dataset is associated with the following publication: Schifman, L., A. Prues, K. Gilkey, and W. Shuster. Realizing the Opportunities of Black carbon in Urban Soils: Implications for Water Quality Management with Green Infrastructure. SCIENCE OF THE TOTAL ENVIRONMENT.
