About this document
This review captures the state of knowledge on aquifer connectivity, particularly within the Great Artesian Basin (GAB), and the Surat, Bowen and Galilee (geological) Basins, including:
- types of connectivity, its implications and measurement
- groundwater flow models, which may both rely on an understanding of aquifer connectivity, and predict the extent of connectivity between aquifers and actions that can alter connectivity
- connectivity within the GAB, a large and high-priority groundwater resource, and within the Surat, Bowen and Galilee geological Basins, which are linked to the GAB and are highly prospective areas for coal seam gas development and/or coal mining.
