"Soil Chemistry and Enzymes" is a dataset captured from soils from the 0-10 cm layer of pastures and forests of three municipalities located in the Microregion of Garanhuns, Pernambuco state (Northeast Brazil): Brejão (8°59'39.95"S; 36°32'22.69" W), Garanhuns (8°58'27.25"S; 36°27'8.12"W) and São João (8°48'35.77"S; 36°24'25.19"W). This study evaluated the transition from dry forest (FO) to pastures in a varied productive state, one with less activity (PA) and another more productive (PB). This pasture state was defined based on the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), calculated from images from the Multispectral and Panchromatic Wide-Scan Camera (WPM) of the CBERS 4A satellite (L4) (INPE - Brazil). The "CBERS_4A_WPM_BAND0-4" files represent the cropped images for the study area.
