Short summary
Soil organic carbon (SOC) stock simulated by Earth system models (ESMs) and those of observational databases are not well correlated when the two are compared at fine grid scales. To identify the key factors that govern global SOC distribution, we applied a data-mining scheme to observational databases and outputs from ESMs. This study not only identifies key factors but it also presents a new approach that compares the observational databases with ESM outputs.
