The effect of varying irrigation return flow volumes as a possible explanation for the fluctuations in the mean monthly baseflow TDS content of a tributary in the Breë River Valley (South-Western Cape Province, Rep. of South Africa) has been investigated. A conceptual computer model was used to simulate the movement of water and solutes in 769 ha of soil in an area where vineyards are irrigated intensively. Important input requirements of the model are the physical and chemical properties of… CONTINUE READING
