Abstract

The physical and chemical properties of sodic gully bank soil material, deposited as in-channel sedimentary structures below a pipe system in alkaline marls, Colorado, were re-analysed for their dispersive status using a new methodology. The original samples were taken from in-gully sedimentary structures with differing densities of established vegetation cover. The results showed that the use of salt-tolerant species in bio-reclamation of dispersive soils could reduce the need for gypsum amendments, and reinforces the value of the site signature approach to dispersive soil analysis
