Baseline monitoring of groundwater properties in the Beetaloo Sub-basin
Understanding groundwater geochemistry and flow in the Northern Territory
This project will enable a better understanding of the geochemical properties, recharge rates and recharge mechanisms of groundwater.
The study involved sampled and analysed groundwater in the Beetaloo sub-Basin to create a set of baseline data against which any potential impacts caused by the gas industry can be measured. It provides information about the baseline geochemistry and groundwater flow characteristics in the Cambrian Limestone Aquifer.
