      The Great Artesian Basin (GAB) is composed of a sequence of sediments that form aquifers and confining layers (aquitards). The thickness and lateral extent of sediments that have formed the aquifers and aquitards depends on conditions at the time of sediment deposition, which ranges from 65 to million years ago, and all the geological forces that have occurred since.

A report to the Australian Government from the CSIRO Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment. Geographic extent of the Great Artesian Basin and ground.

      The Great Artesian Basin in Australia covers 23% of the continent and conta cubic kilometres of water. Many years ago it was claimed on a TV science show I saw that some of the water in the basin comes from Papua New Guinea (PNG) via an underground conduit.   A defined hydrogeological basin is convenient for understanding and classifying groundwater systems. However, groundwater flow results generally from pressure and density gradients and may pass through boundaries defined by hydrostratigraphy. Earlier conceptual models of Australia’s Great Artesian Basin (GAB) ascribed all artesian water in the region to Author: Bruce Radke, Tim Ransley.

      The Great Artesian Basin (GAB) of Australia is one of the largest groundwater resources in the world (Ponder, ), underlying about one fifth of the Australian continent (Figure 1a). Description of the Great Artesian Basin. The Physical System Area of Application This Plan applies to the sandstone aquifers of the Great Artesian Basin (GAB). These are described as geological formations 65 to million years old belonging to the GAB and the intake beds .
