Pacific Island Groundwater Vulnerability to Future Climates Dataset.Scale 1:250,000

Dataset developed as part of the with the Pacific Island Groundwater and Future Climates: First-Pass Regional Vulnerability Assessment.  Includes a Pacific regional database of island types, including a range of attributes (e.g. elevation, shape, geology etc) relevant to groundwater vulnerability.

Data package containing an ESRI shapefile and associated comma-separated value table (.csv) of the Pacific islands. For further information please see
