Abstract

The principal aquifers of Australia (National Geoscience Dataset) has been used to produce the hydrogeology map of the Australian continent. It is described in terms of principal aquifers, defined as those producing the best quality water at highest yield from shallowest depth. Aquifers are defined as porous or fissured, and subdivided in terms of their extent and productivity; these aspects are shown in solid colour on the map.
