Map 4.4: Known and predicted extent of dryland salinity and shallow watertables

Map 4.4



Used in Land chapter Section 4.3

Source: Derived from NLWRA 2001b

Notes: Areas affected are based on groundwater levels and air photo interpretation. Due to limitations in the spatial coverage of available air photo and groundwater level data, it is likely there are other areas currently affected by salinity. The forecast extent of salinity was calculated using rates of watertable rise and excludes coastal catchments.
