Acid sulfate soils arc problematic as the associated release of acid and metals can be extremely harmful for plants, animals, drinking water, and steel and concrete structures (Dent 19866; Dent and Pons 1995a; Osterholm and Astrom 2002; Fitzpatrick and Shand 2008).
The indicators included soil morphological attributes such as colour, mottles, pedogenic segregations, and horizonation; physical attributes such as texture; and chemical attributes such as organic carbon, acid sulfate chemistry, and salinity.
