Nuuk-fen (Greenland) dataset of soil carbon and nitrogen stocks and profiles


This dataset describes the transect and plots labels for each samples, along with the depth, mass, volume, density, dry mass, %weight loss, and %C and %N issued from elemental analysis.

Other quantities described in the paper are easily computed via the following formulas : bulk density (g/cm³) = dry_mass/volume = density*(1-%weight_loss) soil carbon density (g C/m³) = bulk density * %C soil nitrogen density (g C/m³) = bulk density * %N.
