An ANSTO-led study that examined the link between groundwater and surface food webs in the Great Artesian Basin
has demonstrated for the first time that ancient carbon is incorporated in living aquatic species in these ecosystems in the semi-arid and arid regions of Australia.
use traditional conservative tracers, [Cl.sup.-] and [sup.4]He, to constrain vertical transport through the aquitard underlying the Great Artesian Basin
in central Australia, showing how these porewater profiles record paleohydrological conditions and impacts of past climates on recharge.
Hanson rails against foreign exploitation of Australian agriculture and mining resources, yet backs the controversial Adani mega-mine in the Galilee Basin, which is set to pollute farmland and towns, drain the Great Artesian Basin
, and ratchet up global warming by fuelling dirty coal-fired power plants across the world.
Their concerns include the release of toxins and carcinogens into the environment, including the Great Artesian Basin
, the health risks to workers, the harm to communities caused by conflict and division over CSG proposals, the impact on farming and the long term risks to the health of future generations
Some good news: On the eastern, more populated, side of the Australia, the Great Artesian Basin
remains fairly healthy.

Drains have been excavated since the early 1900s and are typically fed by artesian bores, or less commonly sub-artesian bores; in either case, the water invariably comes from aquifers within the Great Artesian Basin
(GAB), which underlies much of the north-eastern quarter of Australia.
Always take plenty of water especially as some of the water in western parts of Queensland comes from the Great Artesian Basin
and a lot of people find that water unpalatable.
"The Great Artesian Basin
is the only reliable source of freshwater across a massive swathe of inland Australia", says Jonathan La Nauze, ACF's healthy ecosystem's campaign manager.
The Discovery of Lake Eyre and the Great Artesian Basin
The Great Artesian Basin
(GAB) aquifers were sealed off with casing and cement in accordance with the well design to protect their integrity and prevent any connection between the aquifers and other activities in the well.
Because the expanded mine will need about five times the 42 million liters a day that it is accustomed to using, BHP Billiton plans to build a desalination plant so the company doesn't have to take more water from the Great Artesian Basin
. BHP Billiton also plans to build a new airport, gas-fired power station, railway line and power transmission lines in the area.
