Digital Data 2021-0007
This grid represents the distribution of hydraulic head in the Cardium hydrostratigraphic unit (HSU). It is a result of a geostatistical model which was constructed using publicly available data from the following sources:
- Alberta Environment and Parks' (AEP) Alberta Water Well Information Database (AWWID)
- Pressure data from drillstem test and production fluids from oil and gas wells
The head surface was mapped at a regional scale using many years of data, thus providing a good indication of groundwater flow within the unit rather than site-specific values.
