GIS45 GIS Coverages Defining the Konza Nutrient Data Sample Locations (1982-present)

Abstract: 

These data show the sample locations for soil bulk density and chemical characteristics along LTER vegetation plots. This dataset contains the transect lines (GIS450) and sample locations(GIS451) at which the soil cores are sampled. These data may be used in conjunction with the Soil Chemistry and Bulk Density (NSC01) datasets. GIS455 contains the locations of the lysimeters used to measure soil water chemistry on the belowground plots. These data may be used in conjunction with the NBS01 dataset. GIS460 contains the locations of the bulk precipitation collectors on Konza Prairie. These data may be used in conjunction with the NBP01 dataset.

These data are available to download as zipped shapefiles (.zip), compressed Google Earth KML layers (.kmz), and associated EML metadata (.xml).
