Saline soils are common in arid and semi-arid areas, where groundwater has the potential to return salts from deeper soil and rock layers to the topsoil or soil surface.  Dryland salinity is the build up of salts in the soil surface and groundwater in non-irrigated areas. Although salts are a natural part of the Australian landscape, dryland salinity refers to excess salt that affects soil, native vegetation, biodiversity, crops, and water quality.

Our key service areas include:
  • Soil survey
  • Dryland salinity mapping
  • Aerial photo interpretation
  • Satellite image processing and large scale mapping
  • Remediation
  • Salinity management plans
