“This project brings together leading research on the latest understandings of the GAB. Before being published as part of this series, each article is put through a robust peer-review process. It is then added to a central portal to ensure people can find and use the information. Having access to the latest, peer-reviewed information on the Great Artesian Basins will help facilitate better decision making when formulating regulatory controls, mitigating risks and determining industry best practice.”

- Dr Carlos Miraldo Ordens, Lead researcher on the GAB project

“Having conducted some research in the distant past on flowing bore casing performance in the GAB of parts of western Queensland, I can safely say: the Great Artesian Basin issue of the latest Hydrogeology Journal is superb. I am most encouraged that so many Australian hydrogeologists are able to contribute such high quality papers. This augers well for the future.”

- Michael Knight AM, Emeritus Professor of hydrogeology and past world president of the IAH
