This paper was originally published as Indraratna, B, Blunden, B and Nethery, A, Nature and Properties of Acid Sulphate Soils in Drained Coastal lowland in NSW, Australian Geomechanics Journal, 34 (1), 1999, 61-78.


Acid sulphate soils pose severe constraints to the protection of engineering infrastructure, sustainable agriculture and environmental quality in coastal estuarine systems in many parts of Australia. The nature and properties of acid sulphate soils are described with reference to data collected from intensively drained coastal lowlands located on the South Coast of New South Wales.
