Map of Soil Erosion Risk for the Mancos Shale Formation
This product used the rangeland hydrology and erosion model (RHEM) to map erosion risks affecting water quality of the Colorado River that originate on the Mancos Shale formation in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. This high-resolution map of erosion risk developed from RHEM can help to prioritize specific areas for more intensive study and action.
Gridded National Soil Survey Geographic Database (gNATSGO)
The gridded National Soil Survey Geographic Database (gNATSGO) is a USDA-NRCS Soil & Plant Science Division (SPSD) composite ESRI file geodatabase that provides complete coverage of the best available soils information for all areas of the United States and Island Territories. It was created by combining data from the Soil Survey Geographic Database (SSURGO), State Soil Geographic Database (STATSGO2), and Raster Soil Survey Databases (RSS) into a single seamless ESRI file geodatabase.
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.
Algorithms for Quantitative Pedology (AQP)
Algorithms for Quantitative Pedology (AQP) is a collection of code, ideas, documentation, and examples wrapped-up into several R packages. The AQP suite of R packages are used to generate figures for SoilWeb, Series Extent Explorer, and Soil Data Explorer.
Java Newhall Simulation Model (jNSM)
The Java Newhall Simulation Model or jNSM is a mesoscale model that is appropriate for use in regional geospatial analyses that support the MLRA update of published digital soil geographic databases (SSURGO/STATSGO2). This software can be used with monthly, serially complete records from weather stations, Soil Climate Analysis Network (SCAN) stations, and local soil climate monitoring sensors.
Natural Resources Conservation Service Locator Map for Block Diagrams
The Natural Resources Conservation Service Locator Map for Block Diagrams contains more than 3,750 block diagrams (line drawings) from published soil surveys. Most of the diagrams relate soils to landscape positions. Each point on the interactive map indicates the location of a soil survey area for which a block diagram is available online.
Small Watershed Hydrology (WinTR-55)
WinTR-55 is a single-event rainfall-runoff small watershed hydrologic model. The model generates hydrographs from both urban and agricultural areas and at selected points along the stream system. Hydrographs are routed downstream through channels and/or reservoirs. Multiple sub-areas can be modeled within the watershed.
