Abstract

This paper describes the spatial distribution of total actual acidity (TAA) in a representative estuarine floodplain in eastern Australia, and outlines the underlying physical reasons for the observed distribution pattern. The severity of the acid hazard has been quantified to highlight the acid hotspots, which can then be targeted in soil management plans. The current management strategy for TAA at the study site, involving containment of acidity within the soil profiles, is also described
