Abstract : A detailed study has been made of selected soils, reported to be laterite soils, to establish data related to their basic chemical, mineralogical, and engineering index properties. All of the soils were developed in a tropical environment between the 11th and 18th North parallels of latitude. The findings have been studied to establish correlations between the properties in order to point the way to more intelligent understanding and engineering usage of these soils. (Author)
