Abstract

The trans-Darling region of western New South Wales contains large areas of soils formed on aeolian deposits, clay or sand. Much of the variation found between different components of each complex of soils is related to variations in the wind velocity at low levels, these in turn affect the moisture input and hence the growth of vegetation. It is the vegetation which determines the wind velocity at ground level, and in the dune systems its effect outweighs the effect of position on the dune. As a result the accumulation of aeolian material and hence the particle size characteristics of the profile at any point is related in part to the present vegetation.
