Abstract: The purpose of this project was to develop a method for mapping areas of Great Artesian Basin (GAB) diffuse discharge for the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources. These areas of diffuse discharge have two physical expressions amenable to remote sensing: a bright surface crust of evaporite minerals, and a lower-than-ambient temperature. The evaporite crust is a result of salt buildup as water seeps from the GAB and evaporates at the surface, and the lower-than-ambient temperature is a result of the cooling effect of the evaporation at the soil surface.
