1 Africa Groundwater Atlas Making groundwater information and data available for Africa Alan MacDonald Brighid Ó Dochartaigh

2 Background Recurring theme of the importance of (particularly grey) literature Ongoing piecemeal initiatives by IAH, IGRAC, BGS (SADC), IWMI Publication of continental African groundwater maps (ERL 2012) Realisation of the importance of long term hydrographs (Nature CC 2013)

3 The project Aim: to make groundwater information much more accessible for Africa and to provide an introduction to African groundwater Web-based database of georeferenced literature Web-based groundwater atlas Companion hard copy (IAH book) groundwater atlas Find long term (>10 yrs) groundwater datasets Ensure long term maintenance and evolution of online resources

4 Timetable End date March 2015 Literature archive Beta version available online Online atlas March 2015 Printed book after March 2015 Steering committee: Callist Tindimugaya (MWE Uganda); Prof Abiye (U of Wits. AGWnet); Segun Adelana (IAH); John Chilton (IAH)

5 Africa Groundwater Literature Archive (AGLA) Content Hidden literature made available (from dusty shelves.) Comprehensive (as possible) index of groundwater literature Searchable Geographic, map-based search Keyword search Output Full bibliographic reference Full text pdf download, if available Weblink to external resource

6 AGLA: Content Currently >5000 entries BGS reports: ~170 now available to download ( ) Other organisation reports: international agencies; other geological surveys; government ministries; consultants reports Journal articles Conference papers Maps: hydrogeological, largely national-scale Copyright is a key issue

7 AGLA: Searchable Keyword search Themed keywords Free text: Title, Author (Abstract where available) Geographic search By country By 1 st level admin area By defined search area (bounding box)

8 AGLA: Outputs Full bibliographic reference Full text download: directly or via external link (e.g. NORA, IWMI) Links to external resources: may not be full-text, e.g. many journal articles

9 Africa Groundwater Atlas Systematic summary of groundwater resources in each country Online, encyclopedia-style (think Wikipedia) Co-written with African hydrogeologists (through IAH) Include summaries of key hydrogeological environments & regionally important transboundary aquifers

10 Supplementary Resource pages, information specific to Africa Soils Groundwater Land use Climate chemistry Aquifer productivity Recharge Groundwater levels Surface water hydrology Groundwater development Geology Related projects: UPGro; BGS quantitative Africa maps; BRGM; Whymap MAIN CONTENT OF ATLAS: Country summary: 1 page per country - Geography - Climate - Surface water - Geology - Hydrogeology - Groundwater quality - Groundwater abstraction and use - Groundwater management & monitoring - Key references Groundwater in Africa - Overview: o Continental groundwater maps o Groundwater occurrence in different aquifer types (geological environments)/main aquifers - Country Summaries Africa Groundwater Atlas - Background to project UPGro, Groundwater Literature Archive, Atlas Aquifer resource pages, information specific to Africa Crystalline basement aquifers Consolidated sedimentary aquifers Volcanic aquifers Unconsolidated sedimentary aquifers For each country, consistent maps, graphs and tables for parameters such as rainfall, national geology, topography each based on a single continentwide dataset. Africa Groundwater Literature Archive Separate pages for key aquifers present in >>1 country e.g. - Karoo - Nubian sandstone

11 Development AGLA More references & more external weblinks being added; search facilities being refined (e.g. georeferencing) UPGro project bibliographies (look out for s!) Please use, feedback welcome Atlas Systematic datasets being sourced and thematic maps & graphs developed Country hydrogeologists being identified. Discussions at IAH 2014 (Marrakech, September) Key references being identified

12 Groundwater level data Identifying long term > 10 year datasets Widespread discussions to capture data Session and training course at IAH Marrakech on interpreting groundwater level datasets Discussions with IGRAC about long term data curation
