Texture effects on carbon stabilisation and storage in New Zealand soils containing predominantly 2:1 clays 
Denis Curtin, Michael H. Beare and Weiwen Qiu

Knowledge of the factors influencing soil carbon stabilization is required to identify soils with capacity to sequester atmospheric CO2. Particle size fractionation studies, using 58 New Zealand soils (representing difference soil Orders and land use histories), showed that the clay fraction of fine-textured soils may be under-saturated with C. Therefore, these soils could be targeted when developing C sequestration strategies.

How does grinding affect the mid-infrared spectra of soil and their multivariate calibrations to texture and organic carbon? 
F. Le Guillou, W. Wetterlind, R. A. Viscarra Rossel, W. Hicks, M. Grundy and S. Tuomi

We report on the effect that grinding to different particle sizes have on soil mid-IR spectra. Our aims were to compare the effect of grinding soil to different particle sizes on the frequencies of mid-IR spectra, and compare the effect of these particle sizes on the accuracy of spectroscopic calibrations to predict organic carbon, sand, silt and clay contents. Generally, better predictions for clay, sand and soil organic carbon contents were achieved using soil that is more finely ground. Grinding did not affect predictions of silt content. Recommendations on how much grinding is needed should also consider the time, cost and effort needed and the purpose of the analysis.

The Australian three-dimensional soil grid: Australia’s contribution to the GlobalSoilMap project 
R. A. Viscarra Rossel, C. Chen, M. J. Grundy, R. Searle, D. Clifford and P. H. Campbell

The GlobalSoilMap project aims to produce a grid of soil attributes at a fine spatial resolution and at six depths. This paper describes the three-dimensional spatial modelling used to produce the Australian soil grid, which consists of Australia-wide soil attribute maps. The modelling combines historical soil data plus estimates derived from visible and infrared soil spectra. The Australian three-dimensional soil maps are envisaged to fill a significant gap in the availability of quantitative soil information.

Combining two soil property rasters using an adaptive gating approach 
David Clifford and Yi Guo

We propose a new method to combine models called adaptive gating, which is inspired by the use of gating functions in mixture of experts, a machine learning approach to forming hierarchical classiffiers. We compare it here with two standard approaches – inverse-variance weights and a regression based approach. Further application of adaptive gating demonstrating its value in other areas of science will bolster the case for pursing such computational research.

Spatial and temporal distribution of rainfall erosivity in New Zealand 
Andreas Klik, Kathrin Haas, Anna Dvorackova and Ian C. Fuller

The goal of this study was to investigate the spatial and temporal distribution of annual rainfall erosivity in New Zealand. High-resolution data from 35 weather stations from both islands were used to calculate the R-factors. Based on these results, region-specific equations were developed and applied by using long-term precipitation records from 597 stations in order to produce a rainfall erosivity map of New Zealand.

Derivation of soil-attribute estimations from legacy soil maps 
Nathan P. Odgers, Karen W. Holmes, Ted Griffin and Craig Liddicoat

It is increasingly necessary to extract even more information from legacy soil maps. We mapped clay content and its uncertainty for Western Australia and the agricultural region of South Australia at six depth intervals using digital soil-class maps that were derived from legacy soil-map information. The results demonstrate harmonisation of soil data from several sources into a map with a common specification and highlight areas where our soil knowledge is incomplete.

Pedological concepts to be considered in soil chronosequence studies 
blank image
Daniela Sauer
pp. 577-591

Soil chronosequence data may easily be interpreted in a too straightforward and simple a way if some relevant theoretical background is not kept in mind. This paper discusses pedological concepts that are considered relevant for soil chronosequence studies. Implications of each of the mentioned concepts are pointed out, in order to provide some guidance for establishing soil chronosequences and interpreting obtained data.

Identification and interpretation of sources of uncertainty in soils change in a global systems-based modelling process 
blank image
N. J. Robinson , K. K. Benke and S. Norng
pp. 592-604

Error sources in predictive modelling are described and a distinction is made between statistical variability (aleatory uncertainty) and lack of information (epistemic uncertainty). Examples of uncertainty analysis are provided and discussed, including reference to error disaggregation and geostatistics. A systems-based analytic framework for uncertainty analysis is proposed in the form of a flow diagram to assist in identification of various uncertainties in the modelling process.

Impact of soil organic matter on soil properties—a review with emphasis on Australian soils 
blank image
B. W. Murphy
pp. 605-635

Soil organic matter has been shown to affect a range of important soil properties that are responsible for the functioning of soils. The direct links of soil organic matter levels to yields and returns are more difficult to demonstrate. However, many soil properties do improve with increasing levels of soil organic matter, resulting in improved soil health.

pp. 636-646

It is widely suggested that soil organic matter (carbon) in grain production systems can be increased by using practices such as reduced tillage, stubble retention and alternative rotations. We measured soil carbon levels in three long-term (12, 28 and 94 year old) field experiments in Victoria. We found that these practices may not reliably increase carbon on their own, but that significant increases are possible in some circumstances through long-term use of multiple practices such as stubble retention + reduced tillage + legume + elimination of fallow.

A space–time observation system for soil organic carbon 
blank image
S. B. Karunaratne , T. F. A. Bishop , J. S. Lessels , J. A. Baldock and I. O. A. Odeh
pp. 647-661

The space–time observation system for soil organic carbon (STOS-SOC) is a novel approach which is driven by satellite-derived inputs and readily available geospatial inputs, such as digital soil maps. These satellite-derived inputs and other geospatial data characterise space–time variations in management and land use. The STOS-SOC primary use is monitoring changes in soil organic carbon which is important for a carbon accounting system and as an indicator of soil quality.

pp. 662-676

The Permanent Top-Dressed (PTD) pasture experiment was established in 1914 at the Rutherglen Research Station in Victoria, Australia, to demonstrate the value of adding phosphorus fertiliser to increase pasture productivity for lamb and wool production. This paper reports on the status of the PTD soils after 100 years, investigating the long-term implications of continuous grazing and fertiliser management on the soil. After 100 years these soils would be in a state of quasi-equilibrium, with the history of superphosphate addition and grazing leading to a decrease in soil pH while increasing the carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and exchangeable Al compared to the control.

Managing cattle grazing intensity: effects on soil organic matter and soil nitrogen

Moran Segoli , Steven Bray , Diane Allen , Ram Dalal , Ian Watson , Andrew Ash and Peter O’Reagain
pp. 677-682

In a long-term cattle grazing trial in northern Australia on Brown Sodosol–Yellow Kandosol complex, we analysed soil organic matter and mineral nitrogen 16 years after trial establishment on moderate and heavy stocking. Higher soil organic matter was found under heavy stocking, although grazing treatment had little effect on mineral and total soil nitrogen. Interannual variability had a large effect on soil mineral nitrogen, but not on soil organic matter.

Land management within capability: a new scheme to guide sustainable land management in New South Wales, Australia 
blank image
Jonathan M. Gray , Greg A. Chapman and Brian W. Murphy
pp. 683-694

The management of land within its inherent physical capability is vital to prevent land degradation and maintain productive soil and land resources. A new scheme, land management within capability (LMwC), that semi-quantitatively categorises the level of sustainable land management in relation to a range of soil and land hazards is presented. It can help to target priorities and guide sustainable soil and land management at local, regional and state levels.

Report card on sustainable natural-resource use in the agricultural regions of Western Australia 
blank image
Noel Schoknecht
pp. 695-709

A report card was published in 2013 summarising the current condition and trend of 10 soil- and water-related themes relevant to agriculture in the south-west of Western Australia. This paper focuses on the assessment methodologies and results for the seven soil-related themes. The results indicate that the situation and outlook for soils is mixed, with improvements in wind and water erosion but adverse trends for soil acidity, soil compaction and water repellence.

C. J. Grose
pp. 710-715

This paper provides an insight into changes in some basic properties of Dermosols in Tasmania between two sampling rounds five years apart. The results suggest that soils under cropping are undergoing the greatest changes with most sites showing an adverse change in one or more of the measured soil properties.
