What happens to the water that soaks into the ground? Why do some areas have salty water, while others close by are fresh? These are important determinants of the health of streams and lakes. Researchers from the Department of Environmental Geoscience at La Trobe University, Melbourne have been working in Western Victoria for many years to find answers to these questions. There are many relevant research papers that have been published, that can be accessed from Associate Professor John A. Webb’s ResearchGate webpage here.
