Short summary
It is important to be able to assess whether changes in land use or management affect soil properties, but testing differences between soil profiles can be challenging. We developed a straightforward approach that makes use of soil core data (which are not spatially independent) to compare soil properties at specific locations down a depth profile. We hope that this approach can be used more widely, based on new or existing data, to examine the impacts of land use and management on soils.
