Description :
Selected physical properties of the soils developed within a strongly-banded grassland in arid New South Wales were investigated to reveal their possible significance for the hydrologic and erosional behaviour of the mosaic landscape. Detailed surface microtopography, surface roughness, soil bulk density and the unconfined compressive strength of the soils were determined using linear transects across the banded mosaic.
