Environmental baseline characterisation of Northern Territory hot springs

April 5th, 2024

This research project will provide baseline environmental information on the springs in Hot Springs Valley, northeast of the Beetaloo Sub-basin in the Northern Territory.

There is little baseline environmental data on the springs of the Hot Springs Valley, an area northeast of the Beetaloo Sub-basin. The valley includes several spring complexes, which discharge hot water at temperatures ranging from around 42 to 65°C.

CSIRO’s Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance (GISERA) has initiated a research project which will involve CSIRO scientists working in the field to collect baseline data on the local ecology, water, geology and naturally occurring gases of the springs in Hot Spring Valley.
