This study used spatial analysis techniques and aerial photography to predict the maximum and minimum extents of saline areas within the NSW MDB. Seven catchments across NSW were surveyed over a 30- to 40-year time frame using recent and archival aerial photographs to determine the change in dryland salinity extent and severity.
