Abstract

It is generally held that downstream salinity increases are caused by two predominant factors: (1) salt concentrating processes, such as evaporation and consumptive use by irrigated crops and native vegetation and, (2) salt loading processes which result from dissolution and weathering of residual salts from soil and geologic strata by infiltration of excess irrigation water and natural recharge.
