Evaluation of approaches to modelling surface water – groundwater interactions around drains in the South East of South Australia’, Phase 1

Author(s): Harrington, N, Noorduijn, S, Cook, PG

Publication Name: Goyder Institute for Water Research Technical Report Series No. 12/1

Date: January 2012

Abstract:

This report provides details of a preliminary study into the spatial and temporal variability of surface water‐groundwater interactions around the drains in the South East, and the utility of electrical conductivity (EC) and radon measurements to quantitatively and qualitatively assess these processes at a regional scale.  Also included are the details of instrumentation installed at two sites, on the Reflows Western Floodway and the Fairview Drain, to investigate surface water‐groundwater interactions at a smaller scale.  The project was funded through the Goyder Institute for Water Research as part of a priority Phase 1 round of the South East Program and both components will provide a foundation for further work on surface water‐groundwater interactions around the drains in the South East.
