Résumé
Groundwater levels in the Wheatbelt of Western Australia are rising and causing severe and widespread land salinisation. Evidence from northern Victoria showed that episodic recharge pulses following floods had caused significant groundwater rises. The aim of this study was to determine : 1. whether episodic recharge was significant compared to regular recharge in the Wheatbelt ; 2. the conditions under which episodic recharge occurs.
