Abstract

Polygons representing a regional interpretation of basement stratigraphic units as hydrostratigraphic units, in contact with the base of the Jurassic-Cretaceous sequence of the GAB. To be used in conjunction with dataset 'Base Great Artesian Basin hydrogeological units in contact with basement' (Geoscience Australia dataset, 2013, Catalogue # 75911) to represent areas of potential hydraulic interconnection between the Great Artesian Basin and basement units. Data is available in Shapefile format This GIS data set was produced for the Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment and used in : Figure 5.8 of Ransley TR and Smerdon BD (eds) (2012) Hydrostratigraphy, hydrogeology and system conceptualisation of the Great Artesian Basin.
