Lineage

This is an extract from the OZTemp database, an updated and improved version of the AUSTHERM05 borehole temperature database previously described by Chopra and Holgate (2005). The Austherm database in turn evolved from another database called Geotherm compiled by Somerville et al (1994). The data has been collated from a large nuber of sources including, well completion reports, state survey databases, company data, published heat flow data and temperature logs recorded be Geoscience Australia. OZTemp currently contains 5513 individual wells and 17247 temperature and/or temperature gradient data records.
