Our work is transitioning to use the projection EPSG:5070 for all GIS work, this is the USGS CONUS Albers.

So in review…the mean NRI slope length for all samples in V1 is 60.8m – 95% 198m. when aggregated to townships: max slope length 95% = 311m
To be conservative, I would start at 311m as a flowpath length threshold, then change to 198m to see how they matchup to the NRI results.

In the dbf file there is a "Management" field with values 1-5. These values correspond to a C factor in IDEP1 management files (the tillage part of the management file) and the correspondence changes based on the crop type since C factors are an indication of the amount of residue on the surface at planting. Higher C factor, higher erosion, lower residue cover.
