SGP97 Electronically Scanned Thinned Array Radiometer Quick Look Images

NAL Geospatial Catalog
    The core of the 1997 experiment involves the deployment of the L-band Electronically Scanned Thinned Array Radiometer (ESTAR) for daily mapping of surface soil moisture over an area greater than 10,000 km2 and a period on the order of a month. The region selected for investigation is the best instrumented site for surface soil moisture, hydrology and meteorology in the world. This includes the USDA/ARS Little Washita Watershed, the USDA/ARS facility at El Reno, Oklahoma, the ARM/CART central facility, as well as the Oklahoma Mesonet. The region covered by the experiment is 34.5 to 37 North latitude and 97 to 99 West longitude. The aircraft mapping took place over the period 18 June to 18 July 1997. This dataset presents brightness temperature images from the Electronically Scanned Thinned Array Radiometer (L band passive microwave radiometer)

    Greenhouse Gas Study for Greenhouse gas Reduction through Agricultural Carbon Enhancement network in Bowling Green, Kentucky

      Alternative N fertilizers that produce low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from soil are needed to reduce the impacts of agricultural practices on global warming potential (GWP). We quantified and compared growing season fluxes of N2O, CH4, and CO2resulting from applications of different N fertilizer sources, urea (U), urea-ammonium nitrate (UAN), ammonium nitrate (NH4 NO3), poultry litter, and commercially available, enhanced-efficiency N fertilizers.

      Clean Air Status and Trends Network (CASTNET) - Beltsville, United States Environmental Protection Agency

      NAL Geospatial Catalog
        CASTNET measures ambient concentrations of sulfur and nitrogen species as well as rural ozone concentrations. The network includes 90 sites located throughout the US and Canada. Each site measures weekly concentrations of acidic pollutants, base cations and Cl- using a 3-stage filter pack with a controlled flow rate. Most CASTNET sites also include a temperature controlled shelter and continuous ozone monitoring system.

        Kellogg Soil Survey Laboratory (KSSL) POX-C dataset

          Forty two samples were selected from the Kellogg Soil Survey Laboratory (KSSL) archive. The soils (41) were taken from the A horizon except for one sample that came from an O horizon. The samples represented 9 of the 12 US soil Orders, including Mollisols (23), Alfisols (5), Ultisols (5), Andisols (2), Entisols (2), Inceptisols (2), Aridisols (1), Histosols (1) and Vertisols (1). The soils varied widely in SOC (3.0 – 288.4 g kg-1; mean 31 g kg-1), pH (4.3 – 8.5; mean 6.2) and clay content (3.6 – 47.0%; mean 21.5%) The geographic origin of the selected samples and the distribution of SOC concentrations, clay contents and pH values are in the sample selected materials.

          WIC Participant and Program Characteristics 2016

          All Content
            FNS developed a prototype system that allowed for the routine acquisition of information on WIC participants from WIC State Agencies. The 2016 Participant and Program Characteristics (PC2016) is the thirteenth data submission to be completed using the WIC PC reporting system. In April 2016, there were 90 State agencies: the 50 States, American Samoa, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, the American Virgin Islands, and 34 Indian tribal organizations.

            Data from: Invasive forb benefits from water savings by native plants and carbon fertilization under elevated CO2 and warming

              To test the hypothesis that elevated CO2 and warming would strongly influence invasive species success in a semi‐arid grassland as a result of both direct and water‐mediated indirect effects, the invasive forb Linaria dalmatica was transplanted into mixed‐grass prairie treated with free‐air CO2 enrichment and infrared warming, and survival, growth, and reproduction followed over 4 yr. Leaf gas exchange and carbon isotopic composition in L. dalmatica and the dominant native C3 grass Pascopyrum smithii were also measured.
