Abstract

Cenozoic surface geology overlying the Carpentaria and Laura basins showing boundaries of the Bulimba Cycle, Wyaaba Cycle and the Claraville Cycle sediment packages. Data is available as polygons in Shapefile format. This data set was used in: Figure 3.4 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.

Lineage

SOURCE: Generalised geology based on the 1:1 000 000 Geology of the Carpentaria and Karumba Basins accompanying Smart (1980), incorporating additional stratigraphic data from stratigraphic and petroleum exploration drilling (QDEX database 2012) METHOD: Scanned images were rectified within ArcGIS and vectorised into linework using the ArcScan toolset. Polygons were generated from the vectorised linework and were attributed with a lithology description which was used to symbolise the dataset. REFERENCES: Smart, J., K. G. Grimes, et al. (1980).
