Figure S1. Check for differences in analytical precision in soil pH measurement between the two NSI samplings (1978–1983 and 1994–2003). Stored samples from 100 of the original sites were re-analysed for soil pH in 2003. The figure shows good agreement between the original and re-analysed pH values across the full range of pH. The slope of the reduced major axis regression (Sokal & Rohlf, 1981) of these two variables is 1.05±0.06, close to 1.0. The concordance correlation (Lin, 1989), ρc, is large (0.96) indicating only small bias and random deviations between the two variables. Bias is quantified by Cb where ρc=Cbρ and ρ is the conventional correlation. If Cb=1 then there is no systematic deviation; here Cb was 0.9997.
Figure S2. Output of the disjunctive kriging of the spatial variation in measured pH. Left hand panel: local estimates of the variance in the rate of change in pH. Right hand panel: the conditional probability that the change in pH was negative.
