Description

Salinity is a time-variable characteristic trait of the soils, as is well known in the irrigated lands. Tracking the variation of soil salinity along time is a way to evaluate the effects of irrigation in agricultural lands or in their surroundings. Such evaluations can enable warning and even implementing corrective actions if salinity underwent undesirable evolution. The data, coming from a forgotten heritage report from IRYDA, are the electrical conductivity at 1:5 dilution of 519 soil samples taken in 1975 with auger from 183 sites, as well as their depth. The time elapsed and the transformations in the irrigation techniques in the district, where now is majoritary the pressurized irrigation, reinforce the interest of this data set for the evaluations of the district. The dataset is provided here in two files (.pdf and .xlsx) with the same content.
