Typical soil and landscape in
Silver Creek mapping unit
These soils have been described by Poutsma and Turvey (1979) in their Silver Creek mapping unit. They are generally friable (when moist) with a dark greyish brown to dull brown loam, silty loam or light clay loam surface, overlying a weakly structured yellowish brown to brown clay loam or light clay subsoil. A yellowish brown mottled, denser clay occurs in the deeper subsoil. These soils are generally classified as Brown and Yellow Kandosols or Dermosols using the Australian Soil Classification.
No pits have been sampled within this mapping unit but soil type descriptions can be found in Poutsma and Turvey (1979).
