Hi Patrick,

Many thanks,

Hi Becky
The version in MOSRS is the u-bv185 Rose/Cylc suite, which uses the Zhang & Schaap H1LS PTF (Soilgrids soil inputs) for the soils. This is the checked-in copy of the internal copy u-bb422GLZE2 suite. The ancillary filename with the soils PTF outputs (for 60-100cm depth) listed in the suite is:


The original soils ancillary file (Brooks and Corey model, Cosby et al. PTF, UM/HWSD soil inputs) was:
