Environmental hydrology and water resources

With around 50 researchers, we have a long tradition of working in interdisciplinary teams to tackle use-inspired research questions to advance sustainable management of land, water and coastal resources. We work in urban, rural, subsurface, natural, freshwater and coastal environments, applying a broad range of research methods including flexible application of field observations, laboratory experimentation, simulation modelling and advanced statistical methods.

In addition to high quality research publications and graduate research training, we deliver policy advice, management solutions, sensing technologies, analytical and operational tools and environmental datasets across Australia and internationally.
