dc.description.abstract The two important regional genetic factors governing the formation of the soils of the volcanic high islands of the Pacific are the age of the parent rock and the amount and distribution of rainfall. The islands of Upolu and Savai'i in Western Samoa offer an excellent opportunity to study the effects of these two factors upon soil development. The islands experience wide ranges of orographic rainfall and have parent rocks of different ages.
