  • Function / Content
    This series consists of a variety of studies and management plans on Land and Water Management, Ground and Surface Water Interaction, Water Catchments and Sailinty.

    One of the studies within the series 'Salting on Dryland Farms' was prepared in 1971 by Jim Rowan of the former Soil Conservation Authority. The study utilised then recently available small-scale aerial photographs covering most of north-western Victoria to assess the distribution, extent and spread of saline surfaces in various topographic situations. This was done in 1966. In addition, field work was undertaken on several farms at sites affected to varying degrees by salting. The distribution of salts and moisture in landscapes was examined in relation to the nature of the soils and vegetation as a basis for consideration of the present and potential extent of deterioration of surface and subsoils, and to consider the effects of various practices of management on ecological stability.
