SOURCE: Grids were generated from the following datasets: Great Artesian Basin: The raster was modified from Figure 28 in Radke 2000, which used data from: 1. Habermehl, M. A. (2001). Wire-line logged water bores in the Great Artesian Basin, Australia - digital data of logs and water bore data acquired by AGSO. Australian Geological Survey Organisation Bulletin 245. Canberra, Bureau of Rural Sciences: ix, 98 p. 2. Brodie, R., Ivkovic, K & Tucker, A. (1991). The Great Artesian Basin hydrodynamic model borehole database, an unpublished report for the Australian Geological Survey Organisation, Canberra. Laura Basin: 1. Unpublished data from the Australian Geological Survey Organisation. The bores sampled are shown in plates 35 and 36 of Bain & Draper (1997), and the data is referred to as "AGSO Great Artesian Basin Groundwater Database". REFERENCES: Bain, J. H. C. and J. J.
