Abstract

Shapefile giving geographic boundaries of the Great Salt Lake Basins. There are 6 features in this shapefile
- The lake itself. This is at a nominal high extent as extracted from common data sources
- Bear River Basin
- Weber River Basin (Which includes Davis County)
- Jordan/Provo River River Basin
- West Desert
- Strawberry

Strawberry is not topographically within the Great Salt Lake drainage, but is the area draining to Strawberry reservoir that supplies water to the GSL basin through the central Utah Project.

The west desert was delineated from digital elevation model analysis separating out the area more adjacent to the lake from a larger area that extends much further south but deemed not relevant for Great Salt Lake hydrology studies.

The original source of this data is not known. For a more precise and current basin delineation I suggest referring to the USGS watershed boundary dataset. This data is the underling data for maps in the following papers
