Save the date – Goyder Institute Water Forum 2017
This project has focused on data poor areas of arid South Australia, and made advances using a range of scientific methods to better understand the water resources of arid inland South Australia. G‐FLOWS‐1 has used multiple data sources to bring together a comprehensive current conceptual model of hydrogeology in the Musgrave Province. This harnessed remotely‐sensed datasets, with on‐ground and borehole measurements, to provide a much greater sense of the subsurface variability in the area. Specifically the G-FLOWS 1 project:
The findings of this project are detailed in Technical Report 13/13
The Goyder Institute G-FLOWS 2 (Finding Long-term Outback Water Solutions) project will increase our knowledge about the character and variability of outback groundwater resources, the sustainability of those resources and their relationship to environmental and cultural assets. The outcomes of this project will enable prudent decision making and policies regarding water allocation, accounting, licensing and sustainable yields whilst ensuring groundwater-dependent ecosystems and environmental assets are protected.
This work will also assist in the development of water supplies for remote Far North communities by identifying alternate groundwater sources to improve water supply security.
To date, our research has developed methodologies to interpret airborne geophysics that can locate new groundwater sources from existing information. These methodologies are now being tested and evaluated in case study locations in the Northern Eyre Peninsula.
