The qualitative analysis in Section 18.104.22.168 lists the major assumptions and model choices that form the basis of the probabilistic assessment of the impact of coal resource development on related to in the . Within the of the goal of the Bioregional Assessment Programme, the Assessment team deemed these assumptions valid and acceptable. There is no guarantee, however, that these assumptions will hold or be acceptable to address any other water management questions in the region.
The Assessment team therefore cannot recommend to use these models for any other purpose than the evaluation of change caused by CSG extraction without a formal re-evaluation of the suitability of the and model assumptions, in line with the Australian groundwater modelling guidelines .
Input data, model files (including the pre- and post-processing scripts and executables) and results are available at www.bioregionalassessments.gov.au. It is recommended, however, to contact email@example.com for detailed information on the groundwater models.
The model is designed within a probabilistic framework. This implies there is not a single parameter combination that provides a ‘best fit’ to observations and a corresponding single set of predictions. The uncertainty analysis does, however, guarantee that the parameter combinations in the posterior parameter distributions honour the observations and general understanding of the groundwater dynamics of the system, within predefined acceptable limits. Any evaluation or further use of both the parameter combinations used in the models or the predictions, need to take into account the full posterior distributions reported in Section 22.214.171.124 and Section 126.96.36.199, or at least a suitable set of moments that describe these distributions.
