Request Excess Soil Samples

Excess soils may remain after soils are fully processed for physical, chemical and microbial measurements. The amount available in any given month will vary depending upon analytical needs for soils during that month; amounts will also vary across sites and years. NEON does not plan to archive these soils.  However, we may be able to make excess soil available to the research community in an ad hoc fashion and on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Please fill out the form below to request/inquire about excess soils. If you have any questions, please contact the Soil Archive team.

Please upload a description and justification for your request for NEON samples that includes:

  1. A brief project objective, description and justification for the use of NEON samples
  2. A list of analyses you will perform
  3. A detailed list of requested samples
Accepted file types include .doc, .docx and .pdf. Maximum upload size is 2MB.
