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 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.
