This study presents easy procedures for comparing soil salinity profiles, which were used to assess 4 saline wetlands in the Central Ebro Basin, NE Spain. Soil salinity measurements at sites where different halophytes were dominant were recorded in 3 seasons (spring–summer–winter) throughout the year in 1979–1980 and 1999–2000, with additional measurements in 1985. Electrical conductivity of saturation extracts (ECe) and the concentrations of major ions were measured in 400 soil samples for 5 halophytes. The 5 halophytes are ranked both by the salinity and the sodicity of their habitats. This work is a baseline to detect to natural or anthropic salinity changes.
