Texture of soil samples collected during the summer field campaign of 2014 in Rio Grando Do Sul, Brazil Samples collected in the framework of SOGLO, a BELSPO funded IUAP project, supported by the Belgian Science Policy Office (BelSPO) in the framework of the Inter University Attraction Pole project (P7/24): SOGLO – The Soil system under global change.


Steps to reproduce

Samples are collected in soil profile pits Locations of profile pits are given in WGS84 coordinates Samples are dried at 40-50°C during ca. 2-3 days Particle size distributions are obtained using Laser Diffraction Laser Diffraction is executed with a Beckman Coulter device (LSTM-13320)
