Late Quaternary soils on clay dunes of the Willandra Lakes, New South Wales

Dare-Edwards, Anthony J.


The clay dunes of the Quaternary lakes of the Willandra system of New South Wales provides a framework for a comparative study of soil development. Extensive work by earlier researchers has resulted in a detailed soil stratigraphy, and palaeo-environmental history of the study area, all based upon an absolute chronology developed by radiometric dating techniques. The main elements of the dune stratigraphy are the Golgol unit (120 000+ to 44 000 years BP), the Mungo unit (44 000 to 18 000...[Show more]
