NCRIS Groundwater Database

$15 million has been invested in groundwater infrastructure, to establish long-term groundwater monitoring sites across Australia. Led by UNSW, with collaboration of expertise from Flinders University, Australian National University, University of Queensland and Monash University, these sites have been developed to provide advanced groundwater monitoring sites. There are six main groundwater monitoring sites in four states. The sites have been selected to cover the range of climate zones and aquifer properties experienced in Australia.

This web database allows a user to find any infrastructure item and to inspect the data (normally a groundwater elevation) and then to see how it has changed through time. All infrastructure has been described in infrastructure reports. These reports give the essential metadata to provide the context for interpretation of the groundwater level hydrographs shown on the data base. These Infrastructure reports can be downloaded from the web site at the location where the level data is displayed.
