WA Landgate - Public - Geology - ASO Sample Collections Point (DWER-056)

This layer shows the locations of Acid Sulfate Soil (ASS) sample sites across the Swan Coastal Plain obtained for the ASS mapping project. The soil cores have been retrieved, using 70 mm sonic direct drill rig, from up to 8 m below ground. The soils core are logged and analysed for field soil pH in water and in hydrogen per oxide at every 0.25 m. Samples for detailed analysis are taken on the basis of field soil pH results. The laboratory chemical analysis along with geomorphic and soil profile characteristics will form the basis of high quality ASS maps for the Perth metropolitan area.
