Land Resource Assessment of the Upper Logan and Albert Rivers Catchment South-East Queensland

This project describes the soils, landscapes and agricultural suitability of the Upper Logan and Albert Rivers Catchment. The data collected in this project (known as the LARA project) informs and supports prioritisation for land degradation rehabilitation, natural resource and catchment management planning, water quality and environmental modelling, as well as local government and regional planning decisions. Soil and landscape attributes were assigned to unique mapping areas (UMAs) based on information collected from 1496 observations, air photo and satellite imagery interpretation, and digital elevation mapping. Conceptual soil profile descriptions, known as Soil Profile Classes (SPCs) were used to describe the relationship between soils, landforms, lithology and geology. Soil and landscape attributes were used to assess the agricultural land classes (ALC) for each UMA.
