Great Artesian Basin major geological structural elements (GABWRA)

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.

Location of major structural features of the GAB. Includes major lineaments, faults and fold axis. Compiled from existing published and unpublished data sets (see Lineage for details) Data is available in Shapefile format This GIS data set was produced for the Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment and used in: Figure 2.3 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.

Scanned images were then rectified within ArcGIS and faults lines were heads up digitized on screen. Datasets from the various sources were then merged and duplicates removed.
