Spatial and temporal water balance estimates using a GIS

Welsh, WD


This paper describes Geographic Information System (GIS)-based algorithms that were developed to provide simple estimates of the water balance for a coastal aquifer near Bowen, Queensland. The 220 km2 area is data-rich with 260 observation bores plus stream gauging, metering of irrigation bores and detailed land use mapping. The analysis proved cost and time effective and provided important insights to the groundwater dynamics of the case study area. The approach is generally applicable to...[Show more]
