Summary & Purpose
Soil physical properties, analytical measures and photographs were taken on soils within the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (RCEW), which is an extensively monitored catchment within southwestern Idaho. Samples were collected over a full range of elevation (1187 to 2111 m), vegetation, lithology (granite, basalt, rhyolite, and colluvium), and climate that varies between mean annual temperature (MAT) precipitation (MAP) from 4.7 to 9.2 °C and 233 to 972 mm, respectively. Soils were collected from profiles by genetic horizons and predetermined depth down to ~1 m or mobile-immobile regolith interface. Here, we provide a spatially extensive soil dataset for 93 soil profiles and 560 sub-samples. We make available a complete soil dataset in conjunctions with the System for Earth Sample Registration (SESAR), where all samples have a unique International Geo Sample Number (IGSN).
Date of Publication or Submission
This study was conducted in collaboration and cooperation with the USDA Agriculture Research Service, Northwest Watershed Research Center, Boise, Idaho, and landowners within the Reynolds Creek Critical Zone Observatory (RC CZO). Support for this research was provided by NSF for RC CZO Cooperative agreement NSF EAR-1331872 (Kathleen Lohse, Principal Investigator; Nancy Glenn, Co-Principal Investigator; Alejandro Flores, Co-Principal Investigator; Shawn Benner, Co-Principal Investigator; Mark Seyfried, Co-Principal Investigator). Data are available at the criticalzone.org data portal. Every sample at RC CZO is registered with an International Geo Sample Number through System for Earth Sample Registration (SESAR). Gordon Gulch data collection was funded by the Keck Geology Consortium, the National Science Foundation (NSF EAR-1062720), University of Connecticut Research Foundation, and NSF Boulder Creek Critical Zone Observatory (NSF EAR-072496). The authors declare no financial conflicts.
