The National Atlas of Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems (GDE Atlas) presents the current knowledge of GDEs across Australia, and shows known GDEs as well as ecosystems that potentially use groundwater.
The GDE Atlas is a tool to assist the consideration of ecosystem groundwater requirements in natural resource management, including water planning and environmental impact assessment.
The atlas, funded by the National Water Commission and hosted by the
Bureau of Meteorology, presents the first-ever comprehensive picture of Australia’s groundwater-dependent ecosystems. follow this link to find out more.
