Global Annual Soil Respiration Data (Raich and Schlesinger 1992)

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

This data set is a compilation of soil respiration rates (g C m-2 yr-1) from terrestrial and wetland ecosystems reported in the literature prior to 1992. These rates were measured in a variety of ecosystems to examine rates of microbial activity, nutrient turnover, carbon cycling, root dynamics, and a variety of other soil processes. Also included in the data set are biome type, vegetation type, locality, and geographic coordinates.
