    Soil salinity control relates to controlling the problem of soil salinity and reclaiming salinized agricultural land.. The aim of soil salinity control is to prevent soil degradation by salination and reclaim already salty (saline) soils. Soil reclamation is also called soil improvement, rehabilitation, remediation, recuperation, or . Water, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Dear Colleagues, The aim of this Special Issue of Water is to present the latest research on the quantification of surface and groundwater salinization processes in the surface water–soil–aquifer continuum. The most susceptible zones to such processes are coastal areas, which are also the most populated regions of the Earth.

    Many countries in the world have made great efforts, to remedy the water shortage, by providing financial and technical backing, for water desalination, treatment of wastewater and improved management and conservation techniques. Water ministries, universities and research centres have supported scientific research, and applied the most recent technologies, in search of new and alternative.   The salinisation of rivers is a global problem that affects to countries all over the world and it causes a high environmental and economic cost, and poses a high risk to global health. Climate.

    The four land categories ranged from extremely degraded land through to normal land and were based on the severity of waterlogging (depth of water table) and the soil salinity. The Net Present Values (NPV) of the three strategies on the four land categories were compared over a period of 25 years, using a discount rate of 6 %.Cited by:   Ghassemi F, Jakeman AJ, Nix HA () Salinisation of land and water resources: human causes, extent, management and case studies.

In some dryland countries, salinisation is viewed as the single most important threat to water resources. However, the extent and importance of salinisation as a global threat has been greatly by: Soil salinisation is a widespread soil degradation process, exacerbated by a mismatch between water demands for irrigation in food production and the amount of quality (non-saline) water.

Different land, crop and/or water management approaches (e.g. conservation tillage, crop selection/rotation, groundwater level control) have been used to Cited by: Home; All editions; Salinisation of land and water resources: human causes, extent, management, and case studies / F.

Ghassemi, A.J. Jakeman, H.A. Nix Ghassemi, F. excellent account of salinization around theworld is given in the book “Salinisation of Land and Water Resources” by F. Ghassemi, A.J. Jakeman and H.A. Nix (). Climatic groupings are a useful indicator of the nature andpotential for salinization (Ghassemi et al., ), butfunctionally it is useful to consider dryland orirrigated salinity.

Soil salinity is the salt content in the soil; the process of increasing the salt content is known as salinization. Salts occur naturally within soils and water. Salination can be caused by natural processes such as mineral weathering or by the gradual withdrawal of an ocean.

It can also come about through artificial processes such as irrigation and road salt. The State of Land and Water Resources (SOLAW) is FAO's first flagship publication onthe global status of land and water resources.

It is an 'advocacy' report, to be published every 3 to 5 years, and targeted at senior level decision makers in agriculture as well as in other sectors.
