Data from: Chapter 5: Energy Use in Agriculture. U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018

    The report 'U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018' serves to estimate U.S. GHG emissions for the agricultural sector, to quantify uncertainty in emission estimates, and to estimate the potential of agriculture to mitigate U.S. GHG emissions. This dataset contains tabulated data from the figures and tables presented in Chapter 5, Energy Use in Agriculture, of the report. Data are presented for carbon dioxide emissions from on-farm energy use. Please refer to the report for full descriptions of and notes on the data.

    Data from: Chapter 4: Carbon Stocks & Stock Changes in U.S. Forests. U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018

      The report 'U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018' serves to estimate U.S. GHG emissions for the agricultural sector, to quantify uncertainty in emission estimates, and to estimate the potential of agriculture to mitigate U.S. GHG emissions. This dataset contains tabulated data from the figures and tables presented in Chapter 4, Carbon Stocks & Stock Changes in U.S. Forests, of the report. Data are presented for above and below-ground carbon stocks and stock changes.

      Data from: Chapter 3: Cropland Agriculture. U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018

        The primary greenhouse gas (GHG) sources for agriculture are nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from cropped and grazed soils, methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock production and rice cultivation, and CH4 and N2O emissions from managed livestock waste. This dataset contains tabulated data from the figures and tables presented in Chapter 3, Cropland Agriculture, of the report. Data are presented for Cropland Soils (N2O), Rice Cultivation + Residue Burning (CH4 + N2O), and Agricultural Soil Carbon and Amendments (CO2).

        Data from: Chapter 2- Livestock and Grazed Lands Emissions. U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018

          The primary greenhouse gas (GHG) sources for agriculture are nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from cropped and grazed soils, methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock production and rice cultivation, and CH4 and N2O emissions from managed livestock waste. This dataset contains tabulated data from the figures and tables presented in Chapter 2, Livestock and Grazed Lands Emissions, of the report. This chapter covers carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide emissions and removals due to enteric fermentation, animal waste management, and land use for confined and grazed animals.

          Data from: Chapter 1, Introduction. U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Greenhouse Gas Inventory: 1990-2018

            The primary greenhouse gas (GHG) sources for agriculture are nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from cropped and grazed soils, methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock production and rice cultivation, and CH4 and N2O emissions from managed livestock waste. This dataset contains tabulated data from the figures and tables presented in Chapter 1, Introduction, of the report. Data are presented for Cropland Soils (N2O), Enteric Fermentation (CH4), Managed Livestock Waste (CH4 + N2O), Grazed Lands (CH4 + N2O), Rice Cultivation + Residue Burning (CH4 + N2O), Energy Use, Forests, Harvested Wood, Urban Trees, and Agricultural Soils.

              The primary greenhouse gas (GHG) sources for agriculture are nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from cropped and grazed soils, methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock production and rice cultivation, and CH4 and N2O emissions from managed livestock waste. This dataset contains zipped, tabulated data from the figures and tables, and maps of the entire report. Data are presented for Cropland Soils (N2O), Enteric Fermentation (CH4), Managed Livestock Waste (CH4 + N2O), Grazed Lands (CH4 + N2O), Rice Cultivation + Residue Burning (CH4 + N2O), Energy Use, Forests, Harvested Wood, Urban Trees, and Agricultural Soils.

              Upper Washita River Experimental Watersheds: Nutrient Water Quality Data

              NAL Geospatial Catalog
                Climate variability, changing land use and management, and dynamic policy environments are the main reasons why long-term water quality data sets are needed to understand and predict possible water quality outcomes to alternative future scenarios. Such data sets were acquired by the USDA-ARS in three watersheds in Oklahoma: the Southern Great Plains Research Watershed (SGPRW), the Little Washita River Experimental Watershed (LWREW), and the Fort Cobb Reservoir Experimental Watershed (FCREW).

                Manuresheds: Redesigning crop-livestock agriculture for sustainable intensification

                  The Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) network is exploring the concept of the “manureshed,” the manure-spreadable land in the geographic, environmental, and social radius of a confined livestock operation. To better understand opportunities for expanding manuresheds in the United States, we identified the nationwide, county-level pattern of livestock distribution, manure excess, and crop assimilation of manure nutrients.

                  sharpshootR: A Soil Survey Toolkit

                    Miscellaneous soil data management, summary, visualization, and conversion utilities to support soil survey operations within the USDA-NRCS. Many of the functions are highly specialized and inherit default arguments from the names used by the various NCSS (National Cooperative Soil Survey) databases.

                    soilDB: Soil Database Interface

                      soilDB is one of the Algorithms for Quantitative Pedology (AQP) suite of R packages, and comprises a collection of functions for reading data from USDA-NCSS soil databases including SoilWeb, Series Extent Explorer, and Soil Data Explorer.
