Abstract

Interpreted groundwater flow divide in the Hutton Sandstone between the Surat and Clarence-Moreton basins in the Great Artesian Basin (to be used in conjunction with dataset 'Surat / Clarence-Moreton basins Hydrogeological Boundary' (GA 2013, Catalogue #75830) to define the easternmost boundary of the GAB) This data set provides an approximate location of the groundwater divide as a polygon in Shapefile format. This data set was used in: Figure 5.3 in 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.
