On Friday, 06 November 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (USA Mountain Time), our FTP services, which also includes automated data requests from services such as Polaris and the GLAS Subsetter, will be unavailable because of system maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
The table below shows the contents of the pedon data files (char.dat, desc.dat, oxal.dat, soil8.dat). The files named "*.key" contain descriptions of each data field in the "*.dat" files. The "*.dat" files contain all the pedon data from NRCS-NSSC provided for the CAPS CD-ROM, including both Alaskan and Russian locations.
