Total carbon and nitrogen in the soils of the world
Summary The soil is important in sequestering atmospheric CO2 and in emitting trace gases (e.g. CO2, CH4 and N2O) that are radiatively active and enhance the ‘greenhouse’ effect. Land use changesExpand
Emissions of N2O and NO from fertilized fields: Summary of available measurement data
[1] Information from 846 N2O emission measurements in agricultural fields and 99 measurements for NO emissions was summarized to assess the influence of various factors regulating emissions fromExpand
Modeling global annual N2O and NO emissions from fertilized fields
[1] Information from 846 N2O emission measurements in agricultural fields and 99 measurements for NO emissions was used to describe the influence of various factors regulating emissions from mineralExpand
Harmonized World Soil Database (version 1.2)
METIS-ID: 167825 The Harmonized World Soil Database is a 30 arc-second raster database with over 15000 different soil mapping units that combines existing regional and national updates of soilExpand
SoilGrids250m: Global gridded soil information based on machine learning
Improvements in the relative accuracy considering the amount of variation explained, in comparison to the previous version of SoilGrids at 1 km spatial resolution, range from 60 to 230%. Expand
SoilGrids1km — Global Soil Information Based on Automated Mapping
SoilGrids1km provides an initial set of examples of soil spatial data for input into global models at a resolution and consistency not previously available and results of regression modeling indicate that the most useful covariates for modeling soils at the global scale are climatic and biomass indices, lithology, and taxonomic mapping units derived from conventional soil survey.

A world dataset of derived soil properties by FAO–UNESCO soil unit for global modelling
A standardized dataset ofderived soil properties for the 106 soil units considered on FAO-UNESCO'S 1 : 5 million scale Soil Map of the World is presented. It was derived from a statistical analysisExpand
Estimation of global NH3 volatilization loss from synthetic fertilizers and animal manure applied to arable lands and grasslands
[1] One of the main causes of the low efficiency in nitrogen (N) use by crops is the volatilization of ammonia (NH3) from fertilizers. Information taken from 1667 NH3 volatilization measurementsExpand

Version 1.2 of describes a harmonized dataset of derived soil properties for the world. It was created using the soil distribution shown on the 1:5 million scale FAO-Unesco Soil Map of the WorldExpand
Harmonized soil property values for broad-scale modelling (WISE30sec) with estimates of global soil carbon stocks
Soils play a key role in providing a range of ecosystem services. Quality-assessed soil information, with quantified uncertainty levels, is needed to address a range of global issues. TraditionalExpand
