Soil temperature surfaces for the South Island of New Zealand are based on analysis of a combination of monthly mean soil temperature data from the NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research) 3 years data from 175 mini-data-loggers (1997-2000) laid out in a stratified sampling scheme at 7 climatically representative locations in the South Island. At each location a cluster of about 25 data loggers sampled a range of elevations between 100 and 1800 m. At each elevation grouping the 4 primary aspects (N, S, E, W) and a flat site were sampled at a depth of 30 cm. Multiple regression used site characteristics of latitude, Distance from coast, elevation, aspect, slope and forest/non-forest cover to predict topographic effects on soil temperatures.

This dataset was last updated on LRIS Portal on 04 Aug 2017.

This data layer was derived from terrain analysis of a 25 m resolution national digital terrain model to create a setof landform elements. The landform elements are derived from a fuzzy classification based on local geometry (curvature and slope) and landscape context, and provide a primary foundation for mapping soil distribution in steepland land systems, which significantly improves knowledge of soil distribution on hillslopes in complex landscapes, and over a wide range of land systems.

This data set is a mask of the temporal and non temporal changes made between land cover database v3.0 and the previous version (land cover database-2). The non-temporal changes include errors in the earlier mappings, step artefact removal, and coastline adjustments. Note: the non-temporal attribute is named "NoTemporal" due to a character length limitation.

An “authority” attribute is also available in this layer indicating the source of the change for both non-temporal and temporal changes mapped. The Authority attribute indicates who identified the change, where;

1 = Landcare Research.
2 = Regional Council or Territorial Authority.
3 = Department of Conservation.

This layer was produced with a map tolerance of 10cm.

Funding is from the Ministry for Science and Innovation under contract CO9X1101, which was contributed to by the Ministry for the Environment. The Department of Conservation and individual regional councils and territorial authorities have made significant in kind contributions by checking the draft mapping for their areas of interest.
