Program 4 applied regolith science to the mapping, assessment and prediction of salinity stores and discharges in both regolith materials and groundwater. The founding objective was to provide specialist geoscientific knowledge, technoloy, datasets, interpretation products and services to other agencies operating through the National Action Plan for Salinity and Water Quality (NAPSWQ). Research outcomes were applied to engineering mitigation proposals, land-use considerations and landscape re-design strategies. Projects included both specialist contractual site studies generally funded under the NAPSWQ scheme and commissioned by NRM agencies or strategic research into generic processes such as salinity hazard mapping, salt stores and mobility, aquifer parameters and groundwater flow models. A key component of research was application of electrical and electromagnetic technologies to the mapping of salt stores in regolith and groundwater.
