Modified Langmuir Equation Spreadsheet

    Spreadsheet from the paper entitled: Revisiting a Statistical Shortcoming when Fitting the Langmuir Model to Sorption Data by C.H. Bolster, Journal of Environmental Quality, 2008, 37:1986-1992. Spreadsheet has been modified to make a correction to the calculation of E for weighted data. (3/18/2010).

      Data from: Soil organic carbon and isotope composition response to topography and erosion in Iowa

        The dataset includes topographic information, soil properties, and 137Cs levels collected from a 15 ha cropland under soybean/maize (C3/C4) rotation in June 2002. The cropland is located in the central-western part of the Walnut Creek watershed, Story County, Iowa. 128 sampling locations were collected and three soil samples were obtained using a 3.2 cm-diameter push probe from the 0 to 30 cm soil layer within a 1 m × 1 m quadrat at each sampling location. Deeper soil samples were collected from 30 to 50 cm layers in locations where sediment deposition was observed. The three samples from each sampling location were mixed and analyzed to determine soil properties, SOC content and its carbon (C) isotope composition (C12 to C13 ratio), and 137Cs levels. For landscape topography of each sampling location, topographic metrics were derived from a digital elevation mode using LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data. These data are useful in investigating the fate of eroded SOC in croplands and its responses to landscape topography.

        Sustainable Corn CAP Research Data (USDA-NIFA Award No. 2011-68002-30190)

          The Sustainable Corn CAP (Cropping Systems Coordinated Agricultural Project: Climate Change, Mitigation, and Adaptation in Corn-based Cropping Systems) was a multi-state transdisciplinary project supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (Award No. 2011-68002-30190). Research experiments were located through the U.S. Corn Belt and examined farm-level adaptation practices for corn-based cropping systems to current and predicted impacts of climate change.
