Abstract

Layer 02 Base of Cenozoic surface Surface produced for the Great Artesian Water Resource Assessment (GABWRA) by Geoscience Australia (http://www.ga.gov.au). This surface was created for 3D visualisation of the Base of Cenozoic sequence. It was used in Figure 3.1 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. The surface is available in the following formats 1. GOCAD surface (.ts) 2. ESRI grid 3. ASCII grid (.grd) Use limitations: 1. GOCAD surface requires program capable of reading GOCAD *.ts (triangulated surface) files 2. ASCII grid data requires re-interpolation by end-user resulting in minor differences to accompanying GOCAD *.ts surface This layer is part of a set comprised of: Layer 01 3-second Digital Elevation Model surface (catalogue #75990) Layer 02 Base of Cenozoic surface (catalogue #75991) Layer 03 Base of Mackunda Formation and equivalents surface (catalogue #76021) Layer 04 Base of Rolling Downs Group surface (catalogue #76022) Layer 05 Base of Hooray Sandstone and equivalents surface (catalogue #76023) Layer 06 Base of Injune Creek Group surface (catalogue #76024) Layer 07 Base of Hutton Sandstone surface (catalogue #76025) Layer 05-07 Base of Algebuckina Sandstone surface (catalogue #76952) Layer 08A Base of Evergreen and Marburg formations (catalogue #76026) Layer 08B Base of Poolowanna Formation (catalogue #76953) Layer 09 Base of Precipice Sandstone and equivalents surface (catalogue #76027) Layer 10 Base of Jurassic-Cretaceous sequence surface (catalogue #76028) This dataset and associated metadata can be obtained from www.ga.gov.au, using catalogue number 75991.

Lineage

SOURCE DATA: For the Karumba and Kalpowar basins, seismic interpretation used information sourced McConachie et al (1997). Stratigraphic well picks from company well-completion reports for exploration drilling in the region - available from the QDEX database (Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines, 2012), Blake et al (1984) and BMR stratigraphic drilling reports (Gibson et.al., 1974). Stratigraphic drill-hole data on the Eromanga Basin came from PEPS-SA (South Australian Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources & Energy, 2011) and the QPED database (Geological Survey of Queensland, 2010). Data sourced from contours and maps in Moussavi-Harami & Alexander (1998), Kellett et al (2004, 2008), Senior (1968) and Langford et al (1995). Digital thickness data was sourced from the Office of Water, Dubbo, NSW (Sue Hamilton, Pers. Comm., 2012). Contours for thicknesses in the Kingoonya Paleochannel were sourced from Hou et al (2007) BOUNDARIES: The surface was clipped to the Assessment boundary (Ransley & Smerdon (Eds.) 2012).
