|Site: GL83||Land Unit: Dundas Sedimentary|
|Aust. Soil Class.: Ferric-Sodic, Mesotrophic, Brown CHROMOSOL (confidence level 2)|
|General Land Unit Description:|
This land unit occurs on dissected slopes leading to valleys, predominantly in the southern portion of the study area. The dominant soil type is a Brown Chromosol, commonly with a ferric horizon above the occasionally sodic subsoil. The landform, along with the high percentage of ferruginous nodules above the clay are the major restrictions to land use. The sandy topsoil is susceptible to wind erosion.
|Geology: Tertiary sedimentary||Landform pattern: Rolling low hills|
