Abstract

The distribution of red and black soil (Xeralfs-Xerolls) associations in the Monarto area (South Australia) is complex and their genesis either being derived from a uniform parent material or a lithologic discontinuity is not known. Hence, the aims of this study were : 1) to assess Zr- and Ti-bearing grains as minerals resistant to chemical weathering prior to applying Zr and Ti elements in determining parent material uniformity, and 2) to confirm whether pedological processes or a lithologic discontinuity may be responsible for the textural contrast within the red and black soil profiles
