Abstract : The scope of the study is reflected in its title: to provide a general geomorphologic, soil, geoarcheologic, and surficial mapping study of the McGregor Range. The purpose is to produce an explanatory model of Quaternary landscape evolution. The study is also intended to provide baseline information on the geology, water resources, landforms, and soils of the McGregor Range, plus explore new and old concepts and background information as a collective intellectual resource base for future environmental assessments, for resource management, and for mitigation and compliance considerations. In one sense this is geoarcheological study, but in another it is a geocological study, one that focuses en the dynamic processes that have operated to produce the modern landscape of McGregor Range and environs. This study included a three-day reconnaissance of parts of the McGregor Range.
