Summary
  • "Many Australian coastal aquifers are vulnerable to seawater intrusion (SWI) - the landward encroachment of seawater into coastal aquifers. SWI can significantly degrade water quality and reduce freshwater availability. In response to the threat posed by SWI, Geoscience Australia (GA) and the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT), in collaboration with state and territory water agencies, have undertaken a national scale assessment of the vulnerability of coastal aquifers to SWI. This assessment aims to identify the coastal groundwater resources that are most vulnerable to SWI and considers the future consequences of over-extraction, sea-level rise, and recharge-discharge variations associated with climate change". --Online abstract.
