Research Project: Development of the FPAC Soil Carbon Data Management Tools Suites and Systems that are Integrated into and Maintained on the USDA ARS Partnerships

Location: Dale Bumpers Small Farms Research Center

Project Number: 6020-21500-001-013-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 28, 2023
End Date: Jul 31, 2024

1. Develop a consistent data management platform for soil carbon data as part of the Farm Production and Conservation (FPAC) Soil Carbon Monitoring Network. 2. Develop tools to visualize data layers which display inventories, areas sampled, landuse relationships and climate signatures. 3. Utilize data to build a system which can promote spatially explicit estimates of soil carbon.

ARS shall develop, maintain, and expand data management tools to support Farm Production and Conservation's (FPAC) soil carbon efforts and provide technical oversight for data inventory, data Quality Assurance/Quality Control, visualization, basic analytics and sharing of soil carbon data. Additionally ARS will develop linkages to other data sources as requested (e.g. crop data layers, meteorological); and the access and utilization of the Partnerships for Data Innovations (PDI) commercial cloud environment, enterprise level software tools, and access to the PDI coordination and technology teams.
