Cover Story (view full-size image): Temperate Highland Peat Swamps on Sandstone (THPSS) are Groundwater Dependent Terrestrial Ecosystems that occur in headwaters stream on low relief plateaus. They provide base flow to downstream catchments in the water supply area of Australia’s largest city, Sydney. These swamps are subject to aquifer interference from mining and groundwater extraction and are threatened by urbanization and climate change. Hydrogen (δ2H) and oxygen (δ18O) isotopes, and Radon (222Rn) were used to determine whether the swamps are dominantly rainwater or groundwater fed. The swamps are dominantly rainwater fed, but up to 30% of water can be sourced from the surrounding bedrock aquifer, making these swamps sensitive to both aquifer interference activities and a changing climate.
