Abstract. Boreal ecosystems comprise about one tenth of the world's land surface and contain over 20 % of the global soil carbon (C) stocks. Boreal soils are unique in that the mineral soil is covered by what can be quite thick layers of organic soil. These organic soil layers, or horizons, can differ in their state of decomposition, source vegetation, and disturbance history. These differences result in varying soil properties (bulk density, C content, and nitrogen (N) content) among soil horizons. Here we summarize these soil properties, as represented by over 3000 samples from Interior Alaska, and examine how soil drainage and stand age affect these attributes. The summary values presented here can be used to gap-fill large datasets when important soil properties were not measured, provide data to initialize process-based models, and validate model results. These data are available at https://doi.org/10.5066/P960N1F9 (Manies, 2019).

Short summary
Boreal ecosystems are unique in that their mineral soil is covered by thick layers of organic soil, which differ in how decomposed they are, what they are made of, & their disturbance history. These differences result in varying properties that impact how much carbon these soils store. We summarize these properties & examine how soil drainage & stand age affect them. Our values can be used as substitutes when soil properties are not measured, provide data to initialize models, & validate models.
