Site-Specific Soil-Carbon (S3C) Database for Mineral Soils of the Mississippi River Basin, USA
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2004_1227

Abstract: The S3C database is a pedon[1]-based, site-specific, soil-organic-carbon (SOC)
database for mineral soils of the Mississippi River basin. The included
soil-carbon and related ancillary data are for 9,215 pedons that were described
and sampled by various agencies between 1928 and 1995 and represent 2,719 of
the 22,517 officially described soil series catalogued by the U.S. Department
