Shallow Total Dissolved Salts

Dataset Number1026
Dataset TitleShallow Total Dissolved Salts
CustodianData Authority: Department for Environment and Water
Data Provider: Department for Environment and Water


DescriptionThis dataset represents the salinity (mg/L) of the shallowest aquifer only. Other aquifers will have differing TDS levels.
UsageThis dataset was produced as a research and development product, caution should be applied when using to assist in decision making.

Data Quality

LineageOriginally digitised by PIRSA before custodianship transferred to DWLBC upon creation of the department. Created by taking Drill Hole point data and gridding at 5000 metre cell size and contoured using Petrosys software.
CompletenessDataset is complete over its geographic extent.
Positional AccuracyPositional accuracy has not been determined. High spatial variability based on density of Drill Hole points.
