The key system components, processes and interactions for the geology, and of the subregion were synthesised based on Component 1: Contextual information and in conjunction with the development of the companion products for surface water modelling (companion product 2.6.1 for the Gloucester subregion ()), modelling (companion product 2.6.2 for the Gloucester subregion () and water balance assessment (companion product 2.5 for the Gloucester subregion ()).
The geological synthesis relied on a detailed new geological model developed by the Assessment team that integrated existing knowledge of the relevant geology for the Gloucester subregion (in companion product 2.1-2.2 for the Gloucester subregion ()). A landscape classification that represents the main biophysical and human and that captures the high-level conceptualisation of the subregion was created.
Future coal resource development was discussed with external stakeholders from the subregion at a workshop in December 2013 and was subsequently refined based on external feedback and information.
A analysis for the Gloucester subregion was conducted over five days via workshops with a range of experts present from CSIRO, Geoscience Australia and the Department of the Environment. The hazards were prioritised and subsequently aggregated by common causes to a reduced set of causal pathways for and .
