Pre-harvest surveys of soil chemistry in Silvicultural Systems Trial, 1997-1998

This dataset is of the pre-harvest sampling to measure soil chemical properties in four of the treatment coupes in the Silvicultural Systems Trial: two dispersed retention coupes (WR001B and WR008B), and two clearfell, burn and sow coupes (WR008C and WR008H) . Sampling was done between May 1997-Feb 1998 in. For each coupe 10-21 sample plots were located randomly throughout the coupe. At each sample plot cores for soil chemical analysis were taken from 0-10 cm (5 replicates); 10-20 cm (3 replicates) and 20-30 cm (3 replicates) depths. Chemical properties measured were: pH, Organic C, Ca, Mg, Total N and Total P. WRA033 Pennington.
