In a practical sense, it can be thought of as the depth to a layer that makes augering or digging difficult. Soil depth is identified as the depth to:· A very stony horizon (more than 35% stones by volume)· A soft or hard rock surface· Shattered rock· A pan, as defined in Hewitt (2010)· Firm consistence, together with massive or gross structure. Note that while the layer defining soil depth may cause some restriction in root penetration, it does not necessarily define the base of the potential rooting depth.The dominant depth classes aredefined as:Deep(> 100 cm)Moderately Deep(45 cm - 100 cm)Shallow(20 cm - 45 cm)Very Shallow(

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 13 Jun 2017.

This dataset contains 500 augers observations of soil properties collected for a digital soil mapping and land use capability analysis in the Kaikohe to Paihia area. An additional 172 tacit points of estimated soil properties at sites where pedologists were confident they could predict likely soil distribution are also included.

These data were used in conjunction with elevation, slope and other spatial explicit covariate data to predict soil distributions continuously across 100 km2 of Northland hill country

Soil map unit raster classification - generated from a Random Forest model based on soil auger data points and terrain and parent material co-variate layers. This model uses 16 soil map units which represent groupings of taxonomically similar soils at NZ Soil Classification sub-group to family level. Random Forest predicts classifications - the map units so defined will be assigned typical soil associations and properties

S-map NZ Soil Classification

S-map's primary map layer is soil classes, i.e. delineated areas that are labelled with the soil family name. Each soil family is defined as a unique combination of attributes (NZSC classification, parent material, rock type, dominant texture and permeability class). Soil classes are further characterised as siblings according to their depth to rock class, stoniness, land type, drainage, texture (more detailed), functional horizons and miscellaneous variant information. The uncertainty of each of these family and sibling attribute classes is specified. Associated with the soil class layer will be additional map layers of fundamental and derived soil properties. The fundamental soil properties are depth (diggability), depth to slowly permeable layer, rooting depth, rooting barrier, horizon thickness, stoniness, clay and sand content. They are developed from sample information and expert knowledge. The derived soil layers are each based on a model (or pedo-transfer function). Some models are simple lookup tables that depend only on the soil class. Others combine various soil, land use, vegetation, climate or topographic attributes in a mathematical formula. Derived layers will include available water (mm), macroporosity, water retention, bulk density, total carbon, total nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, cation exchange capacity, pH, and phosphorus retention.

Soil Map of part of Wallace County

07 Apr 2015

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 07 Apr 2015.

The soil inventory survey of Wallace County, Southland was mapped at 1:50,000 scale and covers approximately 700,000 hectares of a total of 965,600 hectares. Within 6 physiographic regions, soils have been separated by differences in morphology, drainage and parent materials into 132 soil mapping units. Soils have been correlated to South Island soil sets and classification of soils for land use are provided in the attribute table.

This 1986 soil survey has been superceded in lowland areas by Topoclimate South (1998-2001) and S-map (2014) data.

Note this is a more detailed soil map than the Grow Otago soils maps, but uses the old Genetic Soil Classification - soil naming conventions used in this map and the attached report may differ from those found in newer soils maps and databases.

Reserve Potassium

02 Nov 2010

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 02 Nov 2010.

Reserve potassium (Kc) is a measure how much potassium is available to plants. There are three potassium pools: dissolved, extractable, and reserve potassium. Potassium (K) is continuously drawn from the extractable to the dissolved pool when it is used by plants, and likewise from the reserve pool to the extractable pool. The reserve potassium is held in minerals in the soil such as mica. An example of the utility of this information is for organic farmers, who are not allowed to add potassium chloride to their soils (they can add potassium sulphate, but this is much more expensive). Class 3 for Kc will indicate where organic farming is practical. If you zoom in on the map and click on a soil area it will show the Kc class (pot class). The classes are:

0 No data
1 Low (0-0.3 cmolK/kg)
2 Medium (0.3-0.6 cmolK/kg
3 High (>0.6 cmolK/kg)
4 Lakes
