Change detection in hydrology

The quantity and quality of water in our streams is dependent on many factors including climate, land use and management.  This leads to questions about how much impact have th more...

Ecohydrology of flood water and groundwater dependent terrestrial vegetation systems

Hydrology impacts the structure and pattern of vegetation in a landscape, and conversely, vegetation influences water resources through storage of water, feedback of moisture and fi more...

Scaling hydrological models from continent to catchment

A major question in hydrology revolves around scaling, that is, how we translate model results from for example a continental scale to a finer catchment or local scale. This is part more...

Integrated soil ecosystem modeling

This project is aimed improve the highly mechanistic model TOUGHREACTN for soil biogeochemistry by including plants interaction and climate. The aim is to provide modelers and decis more...

Modelling the ionic composition of streams for improved management of salinity

Stream salinity is a major environmental problem in Australia however much of the existing research is based on measurements of stream electrical conductivity (EC) which provides li more...

Biological flocculation of suspended particle matter in nutrient-rich acqueous ecosystems

This project is aimed to investigate the flocculation dynamics of biomineral suspended particle matter (SPM) in turbulently-stirred waters. The objective is to assess the effect of more...

Do hydrological models cope with complex Australian catchments?

Climate change and rapid land use change has forced a rethink on hydrological models. Non-stationarity (where trends in time-series are non-linear or non-uniform) is now the norm, a more...
