Brief description

State of Catchment reports for the 2008 baseline were produced for each Catchment Management Authority based on incomplete results available in 2009. The reports provide a regional summary of average condition and variability in condition for each of the following indicators: Sheet and rill erosion; Gully erosion; Wind erosion; Soil Carbon; Soil Structure; Soil pH; Soil salinity and Acid sulfate soils. The same results are also used to show the average condition of each soil monitoring unit. Lowest scoring indicators in each soil monitoring unit are highlighted. The catchment index, simply the average of all condition scores for all indicators is presented and compared with the soil condition index for NSW. Current soil condition pressure and trends determined from the results of the land management within capability monitoring theme.
