"Increasing efficiency in the use of the Great Artesian Basin (GAB) groundwater resources has important economic and environmental benefits for the whole nation. The National Water Initiative (NWI) recognised that lack of water information and scientific knowledge of water systems hampers the ability of authorities charged with waer management to fulfil their roles effectively. This is especially true for the GAB. The National Water Commission, as part of its work to address this limitation, provided funding for the establishment of a research project entitled Allocating Water and Maintaining Springs in the Great Artesian Basin (hereafter referred to as the AWMSGAB Project). The AWMSGAB Project investigated groundwater hydrogeology along the western margin of the GAB (specifically within South Australia and the Northern Territory) and employed the latest technologies in spatial survey and remote sensing to precisely map the locations and elevations of GAB springs, the extent of their wetland vegetation, and their surface characteristics over space and time." -- Introduction, page x of volume I.

Commissioned by the National Water Commission under its Raising National Water Standards Program and its major partners: the Flinders University of South Australia, the South Australian Government, the South Australian Arid Lands Natural Resources Management Board, The University of Adelaide, the Northern Territory Government and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, as part of the Allocating Water and Maintaining Springs in the Great Artesian Basin (AWMSGAB) Project.
In this study, the term 'western margin of the GAB' refers to the Great Artesian Basin in South Australia and the Northern Territory, which is the focal area of the AWMSGAB Project.
