The Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth Socio-Economic Report and Scenario Planning For CLLMM Project

The following report is a snapshot of some of the socio-economic issues that currently affect the Coorong Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth region of South Australia.

Impacts of Water Development on Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Front

Impacts of Water Development on Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Front

Although droughts and floods produce short term fluctuations in the elevation of Great Salt Lake, water diversions since the arrival of 19th Century pioneers represent a persistent reduction in water supply to the lake, decreasing its elevation by 11 feet and exposing much of the lake bed.

Plant growth under high salinity

Plant growth under high salinity

Plants most suitable for growing under high saline or even seawater conditions are the ones naturally living under high saline circumstances. Clear examples of valuable crops to be grown under saline circumstances or in combination with aquaculture are given by Brown et al. (1999)1 and Kempenaer et al. (2007)2. Next to this group, a series of tolerant or moderate salt tolerant plants are experimentally tested and described in literature. For many species of this group a threshold value has also been described.

Potato production systems in different agro ecological regions and their relation with climate change

Potato production systems in different agro ecological regions and their relation with climate change

This document provides background on potato production systems, starting with a scoping of global production systems and tries to identify key issues for policy and research. It is meant as a starting point for discussion and collaboration on GRA relevant topics. The outcome of this process will be used to create regional or global networks on the identified topics.
