Abstract

Pedogenesis on the Cranebrook Terrace began about 44 000 BP and has resulted in weathering profiles up to 15 m deep which are characterised by much clay and iron segregation. The dominant clay is kaolinite, and the iron forms nodules, crusts and pinnacles similar to those of lateritic profiles. This suggests that many lateritic features supposedly indicative of past tropical climates may actually be due to a great duration of processes operating under temperate climates
