Title: Maximum soil depth measurements from the Terrestrial Gradient plots at the Coweeta Hydrologic Lab in Macon County, NC.
Abstract: Maximum soil depths were assessed as part of the soil chemistry studies at the gradient plots at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory in Macon County, North Carolina. There were 5 sites representing an elevational gradient and different forest types. A soil probe was used to estimate the maximum soil depth of each of the 80 x 80 -m plots at each site.
