Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia

pp. 835-844

The Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia provides soil, regolith and landscape estimates at the centre point of 3 arcsecond grid cells (~90 × 90 m) across Australia. It is the first continental version of the GlobalSoilMap concept and the first nationally consistent, fine spatial resolution set of continuous soil attributes with Australia-wide coverage.

The Australian three-dimensional soil grid: Australia’s contribution to the GlobalSoilMap project 
blank image

pp. 845-864

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.

Large-area spatial disaggregation of a mosaic of conventional soil maps: evaluation over Western Australia 
blank image
K. W. Holmes , E. A. Griffin and N. P. Odgers
pp. 865-880

We spatially disaggregated conventional soil maps across Western Australia. The resulting soil class rasters display the expected patterns of dominant soils, reconciling their distributions across most survey boundaries. Map validation revealed the disaggregated maps still retain features related to the mapping intensity of the original surveys; profiles collected during soil survey may be biased towards rare soils, making them less suitable for validation or modelling directly from point data.

Derivation of soil-attribute estimations from legacy soil maps

Nathan P. Odgers , Karen W. Holmes , Ted Griffin and Craig Liddicoat
pp. 881-894

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.

Derivation of terrain covariates for digital soil mapping in Australia 
blank image
John C. Gallant and Jenet M. Austin
pp. 895-906

Digital soil mapping relies on a range of relevant layers called covariates that are used to predict soil types and properties. Terrain covariates capture properties of the land surface that are relevant to soil prediction, such as slope and topographic position. A suite of relevant and commonly used terrain covariates has been developed for all of Australia to support consistent soil mapping across the continent.

Combining two soil property rasters using an adaptive gating approach 
blank image
David Clifford and Yi Guo
pp. 907-912

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.

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
pp. 913-921

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.

Developing the Australian mid-infrared spectroscopic database using data from the Australian Soil Resource Information System

W. Hicks , R. A. Viscarra Rossel and S. Tuomi
pp. 922-931

We developed and tested spectroscopic models derived by partial least square regression using data from the CSIRO’s national soil database (NATSOIL) and soil samples from the Australian National Soil Archive. Models were constructed for soil attributes, and their predictability assessed. Investigating the spectral library coverage with a suite of 1484 unknown samples from a geochemical survey of Australian catchments, we found that the models could be used to predict soil attributes in geographically diverse samples.

Eighty-metre resolution 3D soil-attribute maps for Tasmania, Australia

Darren Kidd , Mathew Webb , Brendan Malone , Budiman Minasny and Alex McBratney
pp. 932-955

Digital Soil Mapping was used to map a range of soil attributes at different depths across Tasmania, Australia, using existing soil site data and explanatory spatial variables, and producing associated uncertainties of predictions.  The maps contributed to and followed the ‘Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia’ specifications, and form the first version of a spatial soil resource for Tasmania that will be updated and improved through future soil sampling.

Predictive mapping of soil organic carbon stocks in South Australia’s agricultural zone 
blank image
Craig Liddicoat , David Maschmedt , David Clifford , Ross Searle , Tim Herrmann , Lynne M. Macdonald and Jeff Baldock
pp. 956-973

Better understanding the spatial distribution of soil organic carbon (SOC) is important for managing soil resources and informing potential responses to climate change. We applied contemporary digital soil mapping (DSM) techniques to develop a predictive map of SOC stocks in the top 30 cm, and their uncertainty, across South Australia’s agricultural zone. We demonstrate the value of combining legacy and contemporary datasets, expert soil knowledge and modern statistical analysis tools, and we discuss practical considerations for operationalising DSM.

Effects of tillage management on soil CO2 emission and wheat yield under rain-fed conditions 
Xingli Lu, Xingneng Lu, Sikander Khan Tanveer, Xiaoxia Wen and Yuncheng Liao

Compared with the conventional tillage (CT) treatment, no tillage (NT) reduced the 3-year average yield-scaled CO2 emissions by 41% with no reduction in wheat yield. CO2 was significantly and positively related to total nitrogen, soil organic matter, soil enzymes, soil temperature and total pore space. The change from CT to NT treatment resulted in significant changes in the soil’s properties. Multiple linear regression analysis in NT plot explained 85% (P < 0.05) of the CO2 variability and 80% (P < 0.001) in case of CT plot.

Assessing soil-quality indices for subtropical rice-based cropping systems in India 
Nirmalendu Basak, Ashim Datta, Tarik Mitran, Satadeep Singha Roy, Bholanath Saha, Sunanda Biswas and Biswapati Mandal

Soil quality assessment was carried out under long-term rice-based cropping system of farmers’ field for three dominant Soil Orders in Eastern India. Twenty seven no. of soil physical, chemical and biological attributes were used in this assessment. Four to five key indicators were screened through PCA and discriminate analysis. However, 1 or 2 indicators, mostly biological and chemical were validated for predicting the system yield.

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.
