Title: GIS45 GIS Coverages Defining the Konza Nutrient Data Sample Locations (1982-present)
Alternate Identifier: doi:10.6073/pasta/d5150b70d2925fba3cb3b8be05548fd6
Abstract:

These data show the sampling locations for the nutrient datasets at Konza Prairie. Record types 1 (GIS450) and 2 (GIS451) respectively contain the transect lines and sample locations at which the soil cores are sampled. These data may be used in conjunction with the Soil Chemistry and Bulk Density (NSC01) datasets. Record type 6 (GIS455) contains the locations of the lysimeters on the belowground plots, and may be used in conjunction with Belowgound Plot Experiment: Soil Water Chemistry from Lysimeters (NBS01) dataset. Record type 11 (GIS460) contains bulk precipitation sample locations, and may be used in conjunction with the Nitrogen and Phosphorus Bulk Precipitation at Konza Prairie (NBP01) datasets. These data are available to download as zipped shapefiles (.zip), compressed Google Earth KML layers (.kmz), and associated EML metadata (.xml).

Data Entities
Other Name:
GIS450
Description:
GIS450: Soil Chemistry and Bulk Density Transect Lines: Soil bulk density and chemical characteristics were measured on all LTER vegetation plots. This data may be used in conjunction with the Soil Chemistry and Bulk Density (NSCXX) datasets for spatially explicit analyses of these data.
Other Name:
GIS451
Description:
GIS451: Soil Chemistry and Bulk Density Core Sample Locations: Soil bulk density and chemical characteristics were measured on all LTER vegetation plots. This dataset contains the locations at which the soil cores are sampled. This data may be used in conjunction with the Soil Chemistry and Bulk Density (NSCXX) datasets for spatially explicit analyses of these data.
Other Name:
GIS455
Description:
GIS455: Lysimeters on belowground plots: 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. This is data type GIS455.
