Description

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 http://dx.doi.org/10.4225/25/5418CE78535CF. Geographic Extent: North bound 17.0 East bound -134.0 West bound 129.0 South bound -29.0 Scale 1: 250,000 Projection: World Mercator Projection, WGS84 with central meridian 180 degrees longitude, standard parallels at 0 degrees latitude.

This dataset was produced using funding provided by the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) programme.  

A technical report and series of maps are also available as part of this project (see http://dx.doi.org/10.11636/Record.2014.043).
