R D Gee, K Lawrie and T Munday "REGOLITH TO THE RESCUE", Feb 2005

Innovative application of regolith science and new geophysical techniques to natural resource management in upland and lowland regions of the Murray-Darling Basin. This CRC LEME Article (PDF 480kb) refers to the Blanchetown Clay Riverland (SA) and Balonne River Inland Fan (Qld) areas. It highlights the innovative applications employed by CRC LEME teams and the National benefits arising from the research. (posted 22.4.05)


Program Leader Dr Ken Lawrie highlights a cost effective, targeted intervention and management strategy for use by farmers, catchment managers, and Landcare Groups.
