Title Soils of brackish water marshes of South Andaman India
Source Journal of the Indian Society of Soil Science
Abstract Particle size distribution indicates that Sholbay, Wandoor and Pongibalu type brackish water marshes are formed under higher energy conditions than marshes from Garacharma, Sipighat and Bimblitan; also the latter are more saline than the former. Organic C in the brackish water marshes range from about 1.3 to 5.8 per cent and carbon/nitrogen ratios from 8.0 to 18.9. Sodium chloride predominates near shore but farther away, other salts of chloride and sulphate dominate. Various plant species in the marshes are associated with different levels of salinity. Scirpus littoralis, Hygrophilla erecta are associated with low and moderate levels, Acrostichum aureum and Rhizophora spp. with high levels of salinity. The lower energy group of soils are classified as Sulphaquepts while the high energy group are distingusihed as Sulphic Tropaquepts.
