Welcome to the Global Inventory of Long-Term Soil-Ecosystem Experiments - LTSEs

Note: This website has moved - please visit the new home of Long-term Soil Experiments

Since about 2004, we have been inventorying and networking long-term soil-ecosystem studies (LTSEs) world-wide. This global inventory has grown to nearly 250 studies, and we are now beginning to sample soils (0 to 1-m) in 30 to 40 LTSEs in the first coordinated sampling of these invaluable studies. We seek individual scientists, science administrators, land managers, students, institutions & the general public to help build this new scientific project. To quote Ishaku Amapu of Nigeria, "we need make the world's long-term soil experiments work harder."

Nearly 250 LTSEs are in the inventory with metadata and are found on all continents, including Antarctica.
