Abstract

A guide to the use of AEM geophysics for mapping SWI in coastal landscapes and karstic aquifer systems in Australia. The project was funded by the National Water Commission (NWC), with significant in-kind resources and funding provided by Geoscience Australia (GA) and the Northern Territory Department of Resources, Environment, Tourism, Arts and Sports (NRETAS).

Lineage

Given the increasing use of AEM technologies for a wide range of hydrogeological applications, the Australian Government's National Water Commission (NWC) approached Geoscience Australia to review the available literature to: - Summarise the results of previous investigations that have used AEM data to map and characterise SWI and carbonate-karstic groundwater systems, documenting both international and Australian examples; - Describe the key hydrogeological characteristics of the coastal groundwater systems in Australia that are most at-risk from adverse SWI impacts. These data are crucial for initially evaluating whether AEM systems may be of use in characterising the key elements of these groundwater systems. - Provide recommendations on AEM technical risk assessment processes that could be employed to assess AEM system suitability for further surveys.
