NSW eastern forest soil condition: digital soil maps

This dataset includes digital soil map products of key soil condition indicators covering the Regional Forest Agreement regions of eastern NSW. Raster maps at 100 m resolution reveal baseline (approximately 2008) levels of the soil indicators soil carbon, pH, bulk density, hillslope erosion and others. Maps are presented on trends of change resulting from different human and natural disturbances such as forest harvesting, uncontrolled stock grazing, climate change and bush fire. Full description of the digital soil maps and methods are presented in: Moyce MC, Gray JM, Wilson BR, Jenkins BR, Young MA, Ugbaje SU, Bishop TFA, Yang X, Henderson LE, Milford HB, Tulau MJ, 2021.
