Each of these two landform units is an integral part of a land unit defined in the companion handbook Guidelines for surveying soil and land resources (McKenzie et al. 2008). A landform element is the landform part of a land facet, and a landform pattern is the landform part of a land system. Maps to display units based on landform can show either landform elements or landform patterns.

This handbook specifies methods, standards and terminology used in soil and land survey investigations related to practical problems of land use and the scientific study of land and soil. It has been widely used and adopted as a standard throughout Australia, providing one reference set of definitions for the characterisation of landform and vegetation and for the description of soils. The book advocates that a comprehensive suite of land and soil attributes be recorded in a uniform manner. This approach is held to be more useful than the allocation of land or soil to preconceived types.

This Handbook specifies methods, standards and terminology for the description of sites in the field. It provides Australia with one reference set of definitions and has been designed for field use.

Consensus is not the only basis for the recommended survey practice. The book advocates that a comprehensive suite of land and soil attributes be recorded in a uniform manner. This approach is held to be more useful than the allocation of land or soil to preconceived types or classes. Its usefulness is enhanced where computer facilities are available.

The second edition has been extensively revised and contains a number of new sections, in particular a much expanded chapter on substrate. This edition supersedes the 1984 version.

The authors have long and wide-ranging experience in soil and land survey practice.
