Trace metals in soils in the West Bristol (Avonmouth) area

Concentrations of trace metals in soils from a grid of sites located around a disused (since 2003) smelting works in the Avonmouth, UK, area. The soil samples were collected on 4th and 5th October...

Soil respiration in human-modified forests of Eastern Amazonia

This dataset includes measurements of soil respiration in 20 plots (250 x 10 m each) in the Brazilian Amazon. Study plots were distributed across a gradient of forest disturbance, including:...

Soil thaw depth from permafrost in subarctic Canada

This datasets contains measures of soil thaw depth from permafrost in subarctic Canada. Soil thaw depth was measured in 2013 and 2014 in sites from Yukon and Northwest Territories. Full details...

Population dynamics of evolving bacterial populations in soil, 2020

This dataset describes the composition of a co-evolving community (as colony forming units) over a 30-transfer selection experiment in soil microcosms. The community consists of Pseudomonas...

Soil physico-chemical properties 1978 [Countryside Survey]

This dataset consists of soil physico-chemical properties (pH and loss on ignition) from soils sampled across Great Britain in 1978. The Countryside Survey is a unique study or 'audit' of the...

Chemical analysis of nitrogen transformations in biochar amended soil

These data are from an investigation of the effects of biochar application to soil, on soil greenhouse gas emissions and N transformations within the soil. Biochar is a carbon rich substance which...

Soil moisture profiles from permafrost in subarctic Canada

This dataset consists of soil moisture profiles from permafrost in subarctic Canada. Soil mositure profiles were monitored during summer in 2013 and 2014 in Yukon and Northwest Territories....

Soil physico-chemical properties 1998 [Countryside Survey]

This dataset consists of soil physico-chemical properties (pH, loss on ignition, carbon stock and concentration, total nitrogen, Olsen phosphorus) from soils sampled across Great Britain in 1998....

Soil map of the Moor House National Nature Reserve

This is a digital soil map of the Moor House - Upper Teesdale National Nature Reserve. Mapped polygons represent a range of soil types. The site lies in the North Pennine uplands of England and has...

Trial of biodegradable mulch materials (Kent 2012)

Mulches are materials applied to the soil surface to control the growth of competitive weeds. The durability, practicality, and weed control efficacy of a range of mulch materials was tested for...

Meteorological data collected at English Short Rotation Coppice (Intensive) sites

As a result of high oil prices in the mid-1970s, many European and Scandinavian countries initiated research programmes investigating fuel production from energy crops. Initial studies were aimed...

Meteorological data collected at Welsh Short Rotation Coppice (Intensive) sites

As a result of high oil prices in the mid-1970s, many European and Scandinavian countries initiated research programmes investigating fuel production from energy crops. Initial studies were aimed...

Plant and soil animal diversity measurements from a disturbance and nitrogen addition experiment in an upland grassland site [NERC Soil Biodiversity Programme]

Data comprises abundance measures of mites, collembola and plant biomass collected from a field experiment based at Sourhope. Experimental plots varied in nitrogen addition treatment and level of...

Phytophthora Austrocedri Confirmed Infection Sites GB 10K Grid

The dataset identifies confirmed infections of Phytophthora austrocedri in Great Britain. P. austrocedri is a species of Phytophthora that was only recently ‘described’ (in 2007), although it is...

Meteorological data sampled from the Alice Holt (Surrey) Flux Tower (1999-2012)

Meteorological data have been collected at the Alice Holt Flux tower since 1999, these data are used in combination with the data set ‘Net CO2 exchange, evaporation and heat flux data from Alice...

Substrate utilisation profiles and moisture content data from soil sampled in an upland grassland experiment at Sourhope, Scotland [NERC Soil Biodiversity Programme]

These data comprise substrate utilisation profiles (using the BIOLOG gram-negative method) and moisture content data from soil sampled in an upland grassland experiment at Sourhope, Scotland....

Model outputs for simulation of soil organic carbon changes on a Red Soil agricultural site in China using integrated Hydrus 1-D hydrology

Data comprise soil organic carbon (SOC) content from soil simulations in a small agricultural catchment (Sunjia) which is part of the Critical Zone Observatory (CZO) in southeast China (Jianxi...

Soil profile descriptions, biomass data and vegetation species from a joint sampling event at Sourhope, Scotland, 2000 [NERC Soil Biodiversity Programme]

This dataset includes: biomass data for roots, shoots and litter in soil core samples, vegetation species abundance data for sampled soil blocks, and soil profile descriptions (horizon types &...

Diurnal soil nitrous oxide emission, soil temperature and other non-diurnal parameter data, UK, 1983-2019, collated from literature
