Abstract

Boundary of basement inliers penetrating the Great Artesian Basin. These were used to delineate areas of no data in the dataset 'Water table elevation of the Great Artesian Basin' (Geoscience Australia dataset, catalogue #75830). Data is available in Shapefile format This GIS data set was produced for the Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment and used in watertable maps in: Chapter 6 of 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. Regional watertable section of Smerdon BD, Welsh WD and Ransley TR (eds) (2012) Water resource assessment for the Carpentaria region. A report to the Australian Government from the CSIRO Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment. CSIRO Water for a Healthy Country Flagship, Australia, plus Figure 10 in the associated summary report.
