Data and code from: Synergistic soil, land use, and climate influences on wind erosion on the Colorado Plateau: Implications for management

    This dataset includes code and data to recreate analysis from the manuscript "Nauman, T.W., Munson, S.M., Dhital, S, Webb, N.P., Duniway, M.C. Synergistic soil, land use, and climate influences on wind erosion on the Colorado Plateau: Implications for managemen". In prep for STOTEN. This includes R statistical code, aeolian monitoring data and associated soil, land use, and climate explanatory data for each site, and a raster map showing areas modeled to have more sediment transport.

    The Bushland, Texas Sunflower Datasets

      This parent dataset links to two seasons of datasets on sunflower grown for seed at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) in 2009, and 2011. Sunflower was grown on two large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field. The datasets for individual season years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data.

      Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) Datasets

        Site-based crop modeling data from field experiments, farm surveys, and yield trials. These data are in AgMIP harmonized format, ready for translation to multiple crop model formats using the data translation tools at [http://tools.agmip.org/](http://tools.agmip.org/). Details on AgMIP can be found at [http://www.agmip.org/](http://www.agmip.org/).

        Data from: 'Drowning in Drought': County-level drought vulnerability and adaptive capacity of New Mexico Ranchers

          To capture the nuances of drought experiences across New Mexico, semi-structured interviews were conducted with New Mexico State University (NMSU) Cooperative Extension Service (CES) agents (livestock, 4-H, Tribal) across the state in June-September 2020. The interviews were guided by the questions “does region matter [for drought adaptation differences], and on what?”

          Standard Quality Controlled Research Weather Data – USDA-ARS, Bushland, Texas

            The dataset contains 15-minute weather data from the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU) research weather station, Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL). The data are from sensors deployed at standard heights over grass that is irrigated and mowed during the growing season to reference evapotranspiration standards.

            Soil Water Content Data for The Bushland, Texas, Winter Wheat Experiments

              This dataset contains soil water content data developed from neutron probe readings taken in access tubes in each of the four large, precision weighing lysimeters and in the fields surrounding each lysimeter at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) beginning in 1989. Readings were taken periodically with a field-calibrated neutron probe at depths from 10 cm to 230 cm (maximum of 190 cm depth in the lysimeters) in 20-cm depth increments. Periods between readings were typically one to two weeks, sometimes longer according to experimental design and need for data. Field calibrations in the Pullman soil series were done every few years. Calibrations typically produced a regression equation with RMSE <= 0.01 m3 m-3. Data were used to guide irrigation scheduling to achieve full or deficit irrigation as required by the experimental design.

              The Bushland, Texas, Winter Wheat Datasets

                This parent dataset links to three seasons of datasets on winter wheat grown for grain at the USDA-ARS Conservation and Production Laboratory (CPRL), Soil and Water Management Research Unit (SWMRU), Bushland, Texas (Lat. 35.186714°, Long. -102.094189°, elevation 1170 m above MSL) in 1989-90, 1991-92, and 1992-93. Winter wheat was grown on two large, precision weighing lysimeters, each in the center of a 4.44 ha square field. The datasets for individual years consist of soil water content, weather, crop growth and yield, agronomic calendar, water balance (evapotranspiration, precipitation, dew/frost, irrigation), and lysimeter energy and water balance data. Additional resources provide metadata on conventions, symbols used, geographic coordinates of fields, lysimeters and weather stations, and soil properties.

                The Bronson Files, Dataset 10, Field 113, 2018 Cotton

                  Dr. Kevin Bronson provides a dataset representing the third of three consecutive years of cotton and nitrogen management experimentation in Field 113 of the Maricopa Agricultural Center, Arizona USA. Included is an intermediate analysis mega-table of correlated and calculated parameters, laboratory analysis results generated during the experimentation, plus high-resolution plot level intermediate data analysis tables of SAS process output, as well as the complete raw data sensor recorded logger outputs. Note that the second and third year of F113 cotton experimentation includes a large utilization of depleted nitrogen-15 isotope tracing to support evaluation of nitrogen use and uptake.
