Description

Mapped organic carbon (OC) density of surficial soils across Scottish saltmarsh. The OC density (kg m-2) for the surficial soils (top 10 cm) is mapped across Scottish saltmarshes identified in the Scottish Saltmarsh Survey (Haynes, 2016). Additionally, OC densities have been extrapolated for saltmarsh soils to a depth of 15cm for the purposes of comparison to United Kingdom terrestrial soil carbon inventories.
The spatial maps are built upon surficial (top 10 cm) soil bulk density and carbon data produced by the NERC C-Side project (Ruranska et al., 2020) combined with existing saltmarsh vegetation maps (Haynes, 2016).
