The global dataset of soil hydraulic and thermal parameters for earth system modelingIntroduction  Data citation  Data download IntroductionThe Global dataset of soil hydraulic and thermal parameters using different (Pedotransfer Functions) PTFs is provided for Land Surface Modeling. The dataset was derived from multiPTFs (pedotranfer functions) estimation. It includes the parameters in the Clapp and Hornberger Functions (FCH), and in thermal dynamic equation, respectively. The median of the estimation are provided. The resolution is 30 arcseconds. The vertical variation of soil property was captured by eight layers to the depth of 2.3 m (i.e. 0 0.045, 0.045 0.091, 0.091 0.166, 0.166 0.289, 0.289 0.493, 0.493 0.829, 0.829 1.383 and 1.383 2.296 m).
