    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Soil organic carbon stock in kg/m&lt;sup&gt;2&lt;/sup&gt; for 5 standard depth intervals (0&amp;ndash;10, 10&amp;ndash;30, 30&amp;ndash;60, 60&amp;ndash;100 and 100&amp;ndash;200 cm) at 250 m resolution. To convert to t/ha multiply by 10.&amp;nbsp;Derived using soil organic carbon content (&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;), bulk density (&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;) and coarse fragments (&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;), predicted from point data at 6 standard depths. Depth to bed rock has been ignored, hence total stocks might be about 10&amp;ndash;15% lower then reported.&amp;nbsp;Processing steps are described in detail &lt;strong&gt;&lt;a href=""&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;. Antarctica is not included.&lt;/p&gt;
