The hydrogeochemistry of an unconfined coastal aquifer - Merimbula, New South Wales, Australia : implications for the migration of treated effluent
The subterranean estuary underlying the Merimbula-Pambula peninsula in southeast New South Wales sustains fragile coastal ecosystems. Recharge to the shallow unconfined system occurs via infiltration of meteoric waters through sand-dominated sediments within a coastal forest/sand dune habitat hosting both permanent and seasonal wetlands. Solute proportions in rainwater differ from groundwater indicating processes other than evapotranspiration play an important role in the chemical evolution of...[Show more]
