Abstract

This project involved two phases, the first of which compiled reviews of recharge and discharge studies that have been undertaken in Australia (Crosbie et al., 2010a; O'Grady et al., 2010). It also involved preliminary identification of the parameters (climate, soils, regolith, near-surface geology, landforms, vegetation etc.) that determine recharge and discharge rates along with a review of the appropriate scale mapping approaches available for these parameters (Pain et al., 2011). The second phase of the project utilised empirical relationships derived from data collected in Phase 1 of the project in a decision tree methodology that guides the user to the most appropriate estimate for recharge/discharge given the data availability. This report provides detailed instruction in the use of both recharge and discharge spreadsheets and the associated GIS datasets made available via Geoscience Australia's MapConnect website.
