A Review of New Approaches to Groundwater Resource and Salinity Assessment using Mining and Oil Industry 3D visualisation and Quantification Tools
The provision of reliable and up to date geological and hydrological data and models for groundwater resource management has gained importance recently with pressures on developing and/or protecting our groundwater resources. Developers, management authorities and government regulators must consider a range of issues, which may impact on the environmental, social and economic wellbeing of natural resources in the Victorian landscape, including groundwater. The application of a range of software tools to better understand our current natural resources, by analysing, manipulating or visualising natural resource information has increased in recent years. Modelling our current data sets and visualising those models is a key component of this understanding so that informed decisions can be made for resource development or protection.
