Bundle Description

Soil samples were collected from 178 sites in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island in 2007, as part of the “North American Soil Geochemical Landscapes Project”.  The <2mm size fraction of the C horizon sample was analysed for carbon, using a Leco CR412 carbon analyzer.

The data are published in GSC Open File 6433.
