Dataset Abstract

Soil bulk density (g/cm3) in 5 depth increments from VIPs and VIPReps of both experimental sites sampled in April 2015. With additional information on soil water content (%) at sampling hour.

Dataset Design

Volumetric sampling (100cm3 sampling core)
Five depth increments (0-5, 5-10, 10-20, 20-30, 30-50 cm)
Five replicats sampled per depth increment
Oven-dried at 105 °C before re-weighing

Spatial Extent

Experimental site A and B
29°08'-29°11'N
117°90'-117°93'E
