Getting Bogged Down in the Bowen Basin is No Longer a Problem Thanks to Geoimage Soil Moisture Solution

Understanding which areas are susceptible to becoming boggy under different climatic conditions is critical for infrastructure development. The Bowen Basin area is currently undergoing extensive development from linear infrastructure planning, construction, mining, and exploration to traditional agricultural and pastoral farm operations. The Boggy Index provides a picture of which sites in the Bowen Basin are free of soil moisture vulnerability, which sites quickly drain away after above average rain, and which sites are highly vulnerable to ‘boggy conditions’ under different rainfall scenarios.

The Boggy Index product provides Bogginess values based on satellite imagery captured between 2000 and 2011. Dates for assessment were selected on the relationship to climatic conditions prior to satellite image acquisition and  cross-referenced with 33 representative Bureau of Meteorology weather stations across the Bowen Basin. The climate scenarios were then assessed against Elevation, Slope, Moisture response, Clay response and Soil porosity parameters.

The Boggy Index – Bowen Basin is ideal as a backdrop dataset for feasibility analysis or site access selection and as a contextual overview of relative soil moisture over the entire Bowen Basin area.­ The product is purchased on a per sq.km basis, clipped to a localised specific area of interest or over the entire Basin, and is available immediately.
