Global 1-km Gridded Thickness of Soil, Regolith, and Sedimentary Deposit Layers

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This data set provides high-resolution estimates of the thickness of the permeable layers above bedrock (soil, regolith, and sedimentary deposits) within a global 30-arcsecond (~1-km) grid using the best available data for topography, climate, and geology as input. These data are modeled to represent estimated thicknesses by landform type for the geological present.
