Study areas

In the early 1980's incipient traces of point source soil salinisation became increasingly evident in many irrigated cotton growing areas of central and northern New South Wales. In the following section a brief introduction into the biophysical characteristics (e.g. geology and hydrology) and evidence of soil salinisation is provided for each of these areas. This is because waterlogging and salinisation occur as a function of interactions between various biophysical factors, which include

  • Agronomy,
  • Geology,
  • Hydrology,
  • Climate and
  • Topography
