Abstract

Thickness of the Rolling Downs group in the Great Artesian Basin Data is available as a raster 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 5.29 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 76540.
