The Environmental Water Science Group comprises a number of research active academics primarily within the School of Environmental and Life Sciences who have an underlying interest in all aspects of water science. EXPERTISE RESEARCH OBJECTIVES To understand research on the quantity and quality of water and wastewater systems with specific focus on environmental impacts of: […]
In broadest terms, our research examines the lithospheric processes that form the physical environment in which we live. This research is achieved within a plate tectonic framework that focuses on the formation and dispersal of continents. Within this framework, we aim to identify specific tectonic settings which enable us to understand growth of the Australian […]
The Environmental and Climate Change Research Group (ECCRG) conduct internationally significant research in hydrology, climatology, palaeoclimatology and landscape modelling. We develop the science and translate it into information or tools that are useful for industry stakeholders or policy makers. EXPERTISE KEY CAPABILITY 1: UNDERSTANDING HYDROCLIMATIC VARIABILITY AND IMPACTS A focus of the ECCRG is understanding the […]
