In an article published in Scientific Reports, Macquarie University’s Wetlands in Drylands researchers Zacchary Larkin, Tim Ralph and colleagues modelled how increasing aridity, under even a relatively moderate climate change scenario, will affect Australian inland rivers within 50 years...
Prediction tools that simulate complex groundwater – surface water interactions are needed to assist in the sustainable allocation of water yet are handled poorly in existing river planning models. Because of this, eWater CRC have been working in partnership with the CSIRO and National Water Commission, to develop a Groundwater – Surface water modelling component for Source.
