MBC Analysis Boundaries 20160718 v01

Abstract

The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple source datasets. The source datasets are identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

This dataset includes the current boundary data required for the bioregional assessment impact analysis for the Maranoa-Balonne_Condamine (MBC) subregion. These data are (1) the current Preliminary Assessment Extent (PAE), (2) the Analysis Extent (AE) and (3) the Analysis Domain Extent (ADE) and the Focal Analysis Extent (FAE).

The PAE is defined and explained in the BA submethodology (1.3 Description of the water-dependent asset register) and, specifically for the MBC subregion in product 1.3 Water-dependent asset register for the MBC subregion. The Analysis Extent (AE) is defined as the geographic area that encompasses all the possible areas that may be reported as part of the impact analysis component of a bioregional assessment, specifically, the subregion boundary, the PAE and the relevant groundwater model domain. The Focal Analysis Extent (FAE) is based on the defined water balance areas which encompass the modelled limits of potential groundwater change due to additional coal resource development. The Analysis Domain Extent (ADE) is defined as the geographic area used for geoprocessing and data preparation purposes that encompasses the Analysis Extent plus additional areas sufficient to ensure all relevant data is included for the impact analysis component of a bioregional assessment. For MBC, the ADE had at least an additional 20 km geographic buffer added to the AE boundary.

All data are in the Australian Albers coordinate system (EPSG 3577).

Purpose

The purpose of this dataset is to provide the boundaries needed for the impact analysis component of the BA.

Dataset History

This dataset includes the current boundary data required for the bioregional assessment impact analysis for the Maranoa-Balonne_Condamine (MBC) subregion. These data are (1) the current Preliminary Assessment Extent (PAE), (2) the Analysis Extent (AE) and (3) the Analysis Domain Extent (ADE) and the Focal Analysis Extent (FAE). All data are in the Australian Albers coordinate system (EPSG 3577).

The PAE is defined and explained in the BA submethodology (1.3 Description of the water-dependent asset register) and, specifically for the MBC subregion in product 1.3 Water-dependent asset register for the MBC subregion. The Analysis Extent (AE) is defined as the geographic area that encompasses all the possible areas that may be reported as part of the impact analysis component of a bioregional assessment, specifically, the subregion boundary, the PAE and the relevant groundwater model domain. The Focal Analysis Extent (FAE) is based on the defined water balance areas which encompass the modelled limits of potential groundwater change due to additional coal resource development. The Analysis Domain Extent (ADE) is defined as the geographic area used for geoprocessing and data preparation purposes that encompasses the Analysis Extent plus additional areas sufficient to ensure all relevant data is included for the impact analysis component of a bioregional assessment. For MBC, the ADE had at least an additional 20 km geographic buffer added to the AE boundary.

The Analysis Domain Extent (ADE) is defined as the geographic area used for geoprocessing and data preparation purposes that encompasses the Analysis Extent plus additional areas sufficient to ensure all relevant data is included for the impact analysis component of a bioregional assessment. For Gloucester, at least an additional 1.5 km was added to the AE boundary and, in places further extensions were required to include all of the groundwater model domain.
