Abstract

The approximate location of the Helidon Ridge (proposed name) - a basement ridge likely to define the hydrogeological boundary between the Surat and Clarence-Moreton basins in the GAB. To be used in conjunction with dataset 'Groundwater divide in the Hutton Sandstone boundary' (Geoscience Australia, Catalogue #77024, 2013) to define the easternmost boundary of the GAB. The approximate location of the Helidon ridge was interpreted from a GOCAD model layer of Base of Hutton Sandstone surface (Geoscience Australia dataset, Catalogue #76025, 2013). This data set provides an approximate location of Helidon ridge as a polygon in Shapefile format. The polygon represents the area in which the boundary is likely to be located, as the exact location is open to interpretation. Data is available in Shapefile format This data set was used in: Figure 5.3 in Ransley TR and Smerdon BD (eds) (2012) Hydrostratigraphy, hydrogeology and system conceptualisation of the Great Artesian Basin. A technical report to the Australian Government from the CSIRO Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment. CSIRO Water for a Healthy Country Flagship, Australia.
