IGRAC links UCR Shale Atlas with TBA Map

IGRAC has made a map which overlays its Transboundary Aquifers of the world map 2015 with a shale layer. The aim of this map is to provide a global overview of the spatial relationships between transboundary aquifers and some of the major shale plays and shale basins in the world. This 'Shale Transboundary Aquifers Map' has also been included in the Global Overview module of IGRAC's Global Groundwater Information System (GGIS).
