Abstract

Unregulated river reaches with riparian vegetation potentially intersecting shallow groundwater in the Great Artesian Basin. Interpreted from enhanced vegetation index (EVI) time series with high coefficients for the period 2000-2008. Data is available in Shapefile format This GIS data set was produced for the Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment, and used in Figure 9.2 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. This dataset and associated metadata can be obtained from www.ga.gov.au, using catalogue number 76533.

Lineage

SOURCE DATA: Major watercourses from Geoscience Australia's 'GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3' (catalogue #64058; 1:250K GIS dataset; Hydrography theme). METHODS: Selected streams were extracted from the GEODATA TOPO 250K Series 3 watercourse dataset. Those selected : - were classified as 'major' streams; - are within the Great Artesian Basin; - were unregulated ; - had a high EVI. PURPOSE: Identify possible locations of upward groundwater leakage from the Great Artesian Basin into the shallow watertable.
