This paper aims to determine the influence of slope gradient, regolith texture, stone size, and depth of stone embedment on the presence of a vesicular layer just below the surface in arid Australia. The study also identifies the role that topography plays in the development and maintenance of a vesicular layer. Further, the paper discusses the implications of a vesicular layer for hillslope hydrology, and considers how hillslope response to rain mmight be influenced by the spatially varying properties of the vesicular layer
