Bulk density data of the LTER Biodiversity Study

This datatable is part of the Soil Carbon and Nitrogen Deep Core Surveys dataset. An LTER project goal is to periodically collect and analyze deep soil cores for the main site treatments and successional and forest sites. Soil is sampled to a depth of one meter, and analyzed for horizon depths, texture, moisture, and carbon and nitrogen content.
