Abstract

The Australian environments have been subjected to severe and extensive onslaught since 1788 and there appears to be a large potential for combining specific process‐oriented descriptions and broader historical insights. A small selection of the findings of field and laboratory‐oriented studies distinguishes the presence or absence of sodic soils as an important contributing factor in explaining much of the state‐wide distribution of gully and tunnel erosion. Established historical accounts suggest that the detailed sequence of non‐Aboriginal management was locally implicated in the initiation or accentuation of these types of erosion. These abbreviated commentaries present a case for an improved articulation between technical and non‐technical research traditions.
