Great Artesian Basin and Laura Basin groundwater recharge areas

Abstract

This dataset and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are presented here as originally supplied.

Areas of groundwater intake beds for the Great Artesian Basin, including regionally variable local recharge in some places.

Data is available as polygons in Shapefile format.

This GIS data set was produced for the Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment and used in:
