Recycling to help protect our rivers

Recycling to help protect our rivers

Recycled water options for both non-potable and potable (drinking water) use should be among the options considered on their merits as mechanisms that have potential to reduce the long-term demands on the resources of our river and groundwater systems.

Solving the food crisis needs water

Solving the food crisis needs water

The challenge of feeding the world and providing enough water to facilitate this is daunting, given that the consequences of failure will have profound ramifications for rich as well as poor countries.

Potential impacts of sea-level rise and climate change on coastal aquifers

Potential impacts of sea-level rise and climate change on coastal aquifers

The impacts of climate change and sea level rise have the potential to affect both the yield and quality of important strategic water resources provided by coastal aquifer systems.

Second chance to save Australia's wetlands

Second chance to save Australia's wetlands

We are running down our future by running down our wetlands and rivers. Our future is ecological, and it's agricultural and it's water, and water means wetlands and rivers. Not only do we need to stop the loss of our wetlands, we need to reverse this trend and support our land and our agriculture and our people in the process.

Speeding up time with accelerated gravity

Speeding up time with accelerated gravity

An experimental technique developed by a joint Australian-Canadian research effort offers the potential for new insight into long-term hydrogeological processes through the virtual acceleration of time.

Subsidence in groundwater basins

Subsidence in groundwater basins

What is subsidence, where and why does it occur and how can it be predicted?

Smarter irrigation in a drier century

Smarter irrigation in a drier century

How might our irrigation systems be adapted for the 21st century?

Supermodelling the Murray

Supermodelling the Murray

How does the Murray-Darling's complex water system work, how do we measure its capacity and supply under increasing demands, and how do we understand the implications for local communities - in just a year?

3D geological models

3D geological models

Advances in 3D geological modelling software and data availability now enable the analysis and communication of complex geological and hydrological data sets in a visually interactive 3D environment.
