Indicator protocols: location, size and intensity of salt-affected areas

Areas Threatened by Shallow or Rising Water Tables

National Land and Water Resources Audit

Product Information

Salinisation occurs where soils and vegetation are degraded by the discharge and evaporative concentration of saline groundwater. This commences when the water table either reaches the root zone or where it can be evaporatively concentrated (commonly within two metres of the ground surface). Monitoring the expansion or contraction and intensity of salt affected areas provides an effective tool for assessing changes in salinity status over time. It can also aid in determining risk and hazard assessment.
