Soil and Land types of the Lower Maribyrnong Valley (and erosion risk ratings)

This survey in the valley of the Lower Maribyrnong River, carried out for the former MMBW, by Rosemary Hook and David Howe, of the former Soil Conservation Authority (SCA) in 1984; aimed to identify the different land types, principally on the basis of soil and landscape, and to assess their erosion risk following disturbance and track development. The information formed part of the physical data base on which the development and management of the Maribyrnong River Park was planned.
