Abstract

The groundwater recharge-discharge model, or hydro-equilibrium model, has driven Victoria dryland salinity research for the last 30 years. This paper challenges its application to the Dundas Tableland, south-western Victoria, on historical grounds. The critique is designed to question the validity of applying the model to other parts of Australia without corresponding historical research. In conclusion, there is an enormous need for disciplines other than the physical sciences to tackle the problem of dryland salinity, and, by implication, to inform other environmental debates
