This data set provides an update of New Zealand’s depth to hydrogeological basement map. Depth to hydrogeological basement can be loosely defined as the ‘base of aquifers’; or more strictly as ‘the depth to where primary porosity and permeability of geological material is low enough such that flued volumes and flow rates can be considered negligible’. For more detail on the process and methods, see Westerhoff et al. (2019). New Zealand groundwater atlas: depth to hydrogeological basement. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. 19 p. Consultancy Report 2019/140.

A national model was used to estimate depth to hydrogeological basement. Hydrogeological basement refers to geological material with primary porosity and permeability that is low enough such that fluid volumes and flow rates can be considered negligible.

This dataset was first added to MfE Data Service on 14 Aug 2019.

This dataset includes three “packages” of information, each with multiple variables. The packages include:

  1. Load – results on mean annual suspended sediment load reported by REC 2 river reach scale for various model scenario variations.
  2. Lakes – results on sediment inflow, outflow, and entrapment in lakes and reservoirs
  3. Coastal – results on sediment inflows, trap efficiency, and sedimentation rates in coastal hydrosystems (estuaries)

For further detail on the modelling methods and discussing results, see Hicks, M., Semademi-Davies, A., Haddadchi, A., Shankar, U., Plew, D. (2019) Updated sediment load estimator for New Zealand. NIWA Client Report No. 2018341CH, prepared for Ministry for the Environment. January 2019. Available online: www.mfe.govt.nz/publications/fresh-water/updated-s...

Note that some portions of this dataset refine and update 2011 modelling on suspended sediment loads across New Zealand, whereas other components, especially the coastal package, report new modelling results.

This dataset was first added to MfE Data Service on 27 Jan 2020.

This set of data sets provides an estimation of groundwater flux. There are three components: Groundwater recharge: development of nationwide mean (daily and seasonal) groundwater recharge data sets through the combination of three pre-existing groundwater recharge models; Groundwater–surface water exchange: development of a national indicative groundwater discharge data set using an existing national groundwater flow model, as well as comparison with a pre-existing gaining/losing stream prediction data set; Groundwater flow: development of a national groundwater flow data set using an existing national groundwater flow model. For more detail on the process and methods, see Westerhoff et al. (2019). New Zealand groundwater atlas: Groundwater Fluxes. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. 60 p. Consultancy Report 2019/126.

A national groundwater model was used to estimate near-surface groundwater flow amplitudes and separated into four classes to encompass the uncertainty of the dataset.

This set of data sets provides a classification of geological units in terms of their importance for groundwater flow and storage. For more detail on the process and methods, see White et al. (2019). New Zealand groundwater atlas: hydrogeological-unit map of New Zealand. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. 88 p. Consultancy Report 2019/144.

New Zealand Hydrogeological unit map (HUM) separated into aquifers, aquitards, aquicludes and basement developed in a nationally-consistent manner. This dataset includes only outcropping hydrogeological units. This dataset was also joined to the hydrogeological system dataset (Moreau et al. 2019), to provide a single polygon for each unique combination of HUM and hydrogeological system. Summary statistics of surficially mapped products are provided for each polygon (groundwater use, flow, recharge, discharge to the surface; depth to hydrogeological basement; and number of drinking water wells serving >100 people).

Attachment: New Zealand Hydrogeological unit map (HUM) separated into aquifers, aquitards, aquicludes and basement developed in a nationally-consistent manner. This dataset includes overlapping stacked polygons that represent different aged hydrogeological units.
