A soil profile and organic carbon data base for Canadian forest and tundra mineral soils / [by] R. M. Siltanen ... [et al.] Issued by the Northern Forestry Centre. : Fo42-271/1997E
The Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian forest sector required initial estimates of carbon content in soils for each of the ecoclimatic regions of Canada. An analytical data base of soil profile and horizon characteristics was compiled from published and unpublished soil survey reports, inventories, and research data from companies, governments, and universities to represent the common forest and tundra mineral soil conditions across Canada. The data base was arranged to facilitate data handling and analysis to examine the role of different parameters in the carbon dynamics of Canadian soils.
