Abstract

Thickness of Cenozoic sequence in the Karumba and Kalpowar basins overlying the GAB. Data is available as isopachs and raster. Isopachs are in Shapefile format. Rasters are in both ESRI grid and ASCII grid formats. This GIS data set was produced for the Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment and used in: Figure 3.4 of Ransley TR and Smerdon BD (eds) (2012) Hydrostratigraphy, hydrogeology and system conceptualisation of the Great Artesian Basin.

Lineage

Thickness of the Cenozoic sequence in the Karumba and Kalpowar basins interpolated from point thickness values calculated from a variety of sources which include drill hole and seismic data. Seismic interpretation came from McConachie et.al. (1997). Stratigraphic information came from company well completion reports and BMR and GSQ stratigraphic drilling (references below). METHOD: Data was imported into ArcGIS as point sets. The isopach value field was used to interpolate a surface using the Topo to Raster tool in the Spatial analyst toolset. Isopachs were generated from the raster using the Contour tool in the 3d analyst toolset in ArcGIS. BOUNDARY: Karumba and Kalpowar basin boundaries were interpreted from the Surface Geology of Australia 1:1 million scale dataset (Raymond, O.L., 2012). Note: boundary used for this data set in Ransley TR and Smerdon BD (eds) (2012) and Smerdon BD, Welsh WD and Ransley TR (eds) (2012) is the Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment boundary.
