Title: Investigation of water-mineral interactions in gneissic terrain at Mt. Crawford, South Australia / by Dean Leslie Biddle.
Author: Biddle, Dean Leslie
Issue Date: 1995
School/Discipline: Dept. of Soil Science
Abstract: An evaluation of spatial and temporal variation in composition of soil solutions collected from a hydro-toposequence with seasonally saturated soils ranging from Xeralfs to Aqualfs. The sub-catchment is under native eucalyptus and is formed from granite gneiss. The study shows that mineral weathering under eucalypt vegetation contributes substantially to the quantity of elements measured in soil solution with some aeolian salts. Migration of soil solutions to low lying areas promotes dryland salinity in these landscapes.
