Abstract

Thickness of the basal Jurassic-Cretaceous sandstone aquifers in the Carpentaria and Laura basins. 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 2.12 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. Figure 5.8 of Smerdon BD, Welsh WD and Ransley TR (eds) (2012) Water resource assessment for the Carpentaria region. A 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 76536.

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. The raster and isopachs were clipped to a boundary created from : 1.
