Pacific Island Groundwater and Future Climates: First-pass Regional Vulnerability Assessment Map 6: Hydrogeological island types of Pacific Island countries

This map shows the distribution of island types based on the hydrogeological characteristics of islands within each of the Pacific Island counries and territories assessed. 

This map is Map 6 of a series of 7 maps that were developed as part of the Pacific Island Groundwater and Future Climates: First-pass Regional Vulnerability Assessment The maps were developed by Geoscience Australia for the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) programme.
