Land Resources

Major land resource units (MLRU) in the United States are defined by the Natural Resources Conservation Service as geographic areas with similar soil, water resources, climate, vegetation, and land-use features. As such, they are important to determining terrestrial sequestration potential.

The MLRU areas within the U.S. portion of the Plains CO2 Reduction Partnership region are shown on the map below. Click to enlarge the map and link to information on individual MLRU.
