September 16-18, 2014 NSSC, Lincoln, NE Part I

 Introductions Who What Where  Expectations  What does each bring to the table, Talents  What “one thing” do you want to know?

 Reductionism A complex system is nothing but the sum of its parts, and that an account of it can be reduced to accounts of individual constituents  Holism Natural systems and their properties should be viewed as wholes, not as collections of parts This often includes the view that systems somehow function as wholes and that their functioning cannot be fully understood solely in terms of their component parts

 Tuesday, Property Scripts Function Focus – component, component horizon… Robust – always runs (no exceptions) Universal – works as expected on all components Frame of Reference Methods of “rolling up”, when to use them Select projects to work on for the session

 Wednesday Review property scripts Evaluation styles and when to use them  Continuous variable  Text variable  Inverted  Limitation  Suitability  Developing Evaluations (Fuzzy Sets)  Boundaries, Splines

 Thursday Review Properties and Evaluations Base Rules Operators Weighting Hedges (the shape of the fuzzy set) Subrules Parent Rules Local Extreme Conditions (Al sat, LEP, gyp…) Model Techniques Testing and Validation

 "When we try to pick out anything by itself we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe."

 Does Reductionism well  Needs help on Holism

 Extract data Component Table, typically use as is  Slope, T, local phase, climate, taxonomic…  Summarize data Component Horizon Table, typically many attributes  Horizon Ksat, Horizon pH, Horizon clay… Component Horizon child tables, many attributes  Volumetric rock fragments, Unified, AASHTO…  Synthesize data to make a new attribute AWC to depth Pedotransfer functions  Subroutine DERIVE, O horizon thickness, layer thickness, restriction depth…

 SQL output for component data:  BASE TABLE component.  EXEC SQL  SELECT compname, slope_r rv, slope_l low, slope_h high  FROM component;.

 Touch your property script from Exercise 1 to return only the highest lep.

 We often do not want to know the properties of the entire profile  We may need to exclude some depths  We may want to exclude some features

 Say we want to know about the clay content of soils from 10 to 100cm  Could say “WHERE hzdept_r>10 and hzdepb_r<100”  What about the O horizon?  What about an R horizon?  What about gypsiferous layers?  What about a component that is one layer? 10 100

ROBUST UNIVERSAL  Certain combinations of data can cause unexpected problems: One thick layer plays havoc with depths set in the SQL Component restriction at the surface causes unequal dimensions Faulty aggregation can cause unequal dimensions Thapto-histic O horizons  Primary particles are meaningless in organic and gypsiferous horizons  “Conditional Null” supplies a value to allow a null horizon attribute to run under certain conditions  Soils dominated by amorphous materials do not behave like layer silicates (properties and rules need to be adjusted)

 My philosophy on the frame of reference is to extract all the horizon data using the EXEC SQL and control the frame of reference size and exclusions using DEFINED variables 10 100

O YESO NO  Soil will be used “AS IS”  No bulldozer involved  The O horizon is so thick that removal will negate the component, Histosols  Soil will be handled roughly  Bulldozer interpretations  Soil used as a material

RESTRICTION YES PROBLEMRESTRICTION NO PROBLEM  Roots cannot penetrate  Water cannot penetrate  Bulldozer can penetrate  Depends on restriction cementation

 BASE TABLE component.  EXEC SQL SELECT compname, hzdept_r, hzdepb_r, claytotal_l, claytotal_r, claytotal_h  FROM component, chorizon  WHERE JOIN component to chorizon;  SORT BY hzdept_r  AGGREGATE COLUMN hzdept_r none, hzdepb_r none, claytotal_l none, claytotal_r none, claytotal_h none.  # For a weighted average, you need to know the thickness of the layers within the frame of reference, in this case 0 to 200cm  DERIVE layer_thickness from rv using "NSSC Data":"LAYER THICKNESS IN RANGE; ABOVE VSTR RESTRICT BELOW O" (0,200).  # The material below the restriction is excluded  DERIVE depth from rv using "NSSC Data":"DEPTH TO FIRST STR/VSTR CEMENTED BELOW ORGANIC LAYER".  # The organic layer is excluded  DERIVE o_thickness from rv using "NSSC Pangaea":"THICKNESS OF SURFACE ORGANIC HORIZON".  # Find minimum of restriction depth and 200cm  DEFINE min_depth depth < 201 and not isnull(depth) ? depth : 200.  # Find the deepest layer in the frame of reference, min_depth sets the bottom.  DEFINE in_rangeisnull (hzdepb_r) ? hzdepb_r : (hzdepb_r - o_thickness <= min_depth ? 1 :  hzdepb_r - hzdept_r >= min_depth ? 1 : 0).   #When the restriction is at the surface, in_range is never 1, so the weighted average  #calculation fails due to unequal dimensions. If the restriction is at the surface,  #we make depth hzdept_r. We do not want to always make in_range 1, only when the restriction  #depth is 0. Default needs to be dimension 1.  ASSIGN layer_thicknessdepth == 0 ? hzdept_r : layer_thickness.  ASSIGN in_rangelayer_thickness < 0 ? 1 : in_range.  DEFINE default0*layer_thickness.  # The phrase: if hzdepb_r - o_thickness <=0 sets the top of the frame of reference, to lower, add a number higher than 0  DEFINE rv wtavg((if hzdepb_r - o_thickness <=0 THEN default ELSE lookup(1, in_range, claytotal_r)), layer_thickness).

 The SQL syntax in almost all current property scripts is a legacy of the UNIX INFORMIX system from which NASIS originated  Since NASIS 6.x, Microsoft SQL Server has been used as the NASIS SQL  SQL Server allows more modern syntax which should allow property scripts to run faster
