Bribie Island groundwater resources : challenges in development of conceptual and numerical models
Taulis, Mauricio, Cox, Malcolm, Todd, Andrew, Hawke, Amy, Raiber, Matthias, & James, Allan (2012) Bribie Island groundwater resources : challenges in development of conceptual and numerical models. Proceedings of the Royal Society of Queensland, 117, pp. 101-117.
Groundwater is a major resource on Bribie Island and its sustainable management is essential to maintain the natural and modified eco-systems, as well as the human population and the integrity of the island as a sand mass. An effective numerical model is essential to enable predictions, and to test various water use and rainfall/climate scenarios. Such a numerical model must, however, be based on a representative conceptual hydrogeological model to allow incorporation of realistic controls and processes. Here we discuss the various hydrogeological models and parameters, and hydrological properties of the materials forming the island. We discuss the hydrological processes and how they can be incorporated into these models, in an integrated manner. Processes include recharge, discharge to wetlands and along the coastline, abstraction, evapotranspiration and potential seawater intrusion. The types and distributions of groundwater bores and monitoring are considered, as are scenarios for groundwater supply abstraction. Different types of numerical models and their applicability are also considered
