NAL Geospatial Catalog
The temporal coverage for this dataset is as follows: Begin datetime: 1995-10-01 00:00:00, End datetime: 2001-03-31 23:59:59. The Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Southern Great Plains (SGP) Soil Texture Data Set is one of the various sub-surface data sets developed for the ARM/GCIP (Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) Continental-scale International Project) 1996 Near-Surface Observation (NESOB-96) Data Set. This data set contains a summary table of the percentages of sand, silt, and clay fractions in each soil layer at each of the ARM SWATS (Soil Water and Temperature System) sites at the SGP site. Also included is the corresponding USDA texture class as determined from the "soil triangle". The soil characterizations were perfomed by Oklahoma State University.
