Earth-tide-induced fluctuations in the salinity of an inland river, New South Wales, Australia: a short-term study

Jasonsmith, Julia; MacDonald, Bennett; White, Ian


Wybong Creek discharges salts into the agriculturally and industrially important Hunter River in New SouthWales, Australia. Abrupt increases in salinity occur periodically in the mid-Wybong Creek catchment. In order to understand the processes which cause these abrupt increases, changes in surface and groundwater were investigated. It is shown that salinity increases can be attributed to highly discrete groundwater discharge directly into the river from below. Hourly electrical conductivity...[Show more]
