  • map of estimated mean annual groundwater abstraction across the Indo-Gangetic alluvial aquifer
  • map of groundwater salinity, measured as total dissolved solids, across the Indo-Gangetic alluvial aquifer
  • map of arsenic in groundwater across the Indo-Gangetic alluvial aquifer

The Mapping is made available to download and to be viewed for any non-commercial purpose.

No part of any of the Mapping may be traded, sold, licensed or sub-licensed or in any other way supplied/made available on a commercial basis to any other person or organisation.
