PurposeRestoration of saline soil in coastal areas requires detailed understanding of spatial and temporal soil salt distribution and how the distribution is affected by different environmental factors (e.g., precipitation and evaporation), particularly under the influence of salt water intrusion. Because of the high accuracy of chloride measurement, and chloride as a common ion in soil salt, we used soil chloride as a proxy of soil salt in a coastal area of southeastern China.Materials and…

The spatial distribution characteristics of soil salinity in coastal zone of the Yellow River Delta
In coastal area, salinization is a common and serious problem for crop cultivation and ecological restoration of degraded wetlands. Therefore, the soil salinity has attracted increasing attention
Decreased precipitation exacerbates the effects of sea level on coastal dune ecosystems in open ocean islands
The alteration of fresh and marine water cycling is likely to occur in coastal ecosystems as climate change causes the global redistribution of precipitation while simultaneously driving sea‐level
Factors influencing chloride deposition in a coastal hilly area and application to chloride deposition mapping
Abstract. Chloride is commonly used as an environmental tracer for studying water flow and solute transport in the environment. It is especially useful for estimating groundwater recharge based on
Geostatistical characterization of soil moisture and chloride distribution in deep vadose profiles of the Badain Jaran Desert, Northwestern China
Geostatistical analysis of soil moisture and ion accumulation can provide a deep understanding of aspects of a region’s hydrology such as recharge rates and flow paths. By combining this approach
Shallow groundwater dynamics and origin of salinity at two sites in salinated and water-deficient region of North China Plain, China
Large salinated areas are distributed in the middle and east of the North China Plain (NCP), where the fresh water shortage is serious. In this study, two sites in Cangzhou (CZ) and Hengshui (HS) of
Seasonal Variations in Groundwater Level and Salinity in Coastal Plain of Eastern China Influenced by Climate
The coastline of China is approximately 18,000 km long. In most coastal cities, seawater intrusion is a serious threat to groundwater resources. Nine shallow monitoring wells were constructed to
Soil quality in east coastal region of China as related to different land use types
PurposeThe impacts of different land use practices on soil quality were assessed by measuring soil attributes and using factor analysis in coastal tidal lands. The study provided relevant references
