Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This data release includes soil properties for marsh sediment cores taken in both a C3 (Schoenoplectus americanus) and C4 (Spartina patens) dominated marsh adjacent to the SMARTX warming plots at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. Large push cores were collected from each of the dominant vegetation types and analyzed for bulk density, % organic matter, and accretion rates using 210Pb analysis.
