Soil Series Horizon Hydraulic Data
HORIZON Hydraulics is tabular data that can be used in conjunction with any of the NATMAP products, excepting NATMAP soilscapes.
HORIZON Hydraulics includes very detailed descriptions of the hydraulic properties pertaining to each layer, or horizon for each of the soils. This data is based heavily on laboratory based analyses.
How much does this product cost?
You will need to lease this attribute product with a relevant NATMAP soil map dataset. For detailed pricing information, use our Quotation Advisor utility.

Note: Quality information (*_QA) relevant to the texture, organic carbon and pH values is provided. Where the data is averaged from measured sample data the standard deviation is recorded unless their were too few samples in which case Not Applicable (NA) is entered. In some cases an expert soil scientist provided a meaningful value for the parameter in which case the value is labeled 'EXPERT'. Where no meaningful value is derivable a reason is given whether as a result of rock, rubble, ironpan or peat. The coarse and medium sand values have as yet only been derived for the 'A' horizons, therefore subhorizons are labeled 'ND' for Not Derived.Top
