SGP97 Sub-Surface: PSU Soil Properties Data (Bulk Density)

Metadata Updated: February 4, 2022

The Southern Great Plains 1997 (SGP97) Hydrology Experiment originated from an interdisciplinary investigation, "Soil Moisture Mapping at Satellite Temporal and Spatial Scales" (PI: Thomas J. Jackson, USDA Agricultural Research Service, Beltsville, MD) selected under the NASA Research Announcement 95-MTPE-03. The region selected for investigation is the best instrumented site for surface soil moisture, hydrology and meteorology in the world. This includes the USDA/ARS Little Washita Watershed, the USDA/ARS facility at El Reno, Oklahoma, the ARM/CART central facility, as well as the Oklahoma Mesonet. The temporal coverage for this dataset is as follows: Begin datetime: 1997-06-01 00:00:00, End datetime: 1997-07-31 23:59:59. Using the volume extracted and the dry weight of the soil extracted, the bulk density was computed; the results obtained from sampling the soil surface layer (0-5 cm) bulk density are provided, and files are all ASCII text. This data set was developed by the EOS IDS Team at Penn State for the Southern Great Plains 1997 (SGP-97) project. The following data coverages are available: DEM, Landcover and Landuse, Gauge Stations, Available Water Capacity, Bulk Density, Depth to Bedrock, Hydrologic Soils Group, Mapunits, Percent Water, Porosity, Rock Fragment Class, Rock Volume, Soil Fractions, and Surface Soil Texture. Note that the data presented in the tables have had the tare weights removed.
