Notes: "The Murray-Darling Basin Groundwater Status 1990-2000: Summary Report gives an overview of the project and will be useful for catchment and resource managers and policy decision makers. A comprehensive technical report, which includes a detailed assessment of each groundwater subsystem, and a series of catchment reports describing the hydrogeology of surface water catchment areas, has also been produced and presented electronically on CD along with the summary report in an interactive format allowing easy access to all information. This project has also developed a Geographical Information System product on CD, which presents a series of digital maps presented through a user friendly interface. These CDs are provided as inserts to this summary report to provide the complete Murray-Darling Basin Groundwater 1990-2000 information package" -- Foreword.
