Featured research projects
Our work directly supports decision-making related to maintenance and restoration of the long-term health of rivers, catchments, ﬂoodplains and wetlands.
This project is assessing whether methane seeps in the Condamine River have any direct effect on the river's water quality and ecological status.
This project continued the work of the Darling Anabranch Adaptive Management Monitoring Program (DAAMMP) and helped guide decisions on the management of environmental flows.
This project aims to characterise the types of dissolved organic carbon found within Australian freshwaters and investigate how these influence metal toxicity to organisms.
The Living Murray efforts involve a combination of on ground works for the delivery of environmental water and a monitoring and evaluation program at six icon sites chosen for their ecological and cultural significance.
Long Term Intervention Monitoring (LTIM) is a key element of the Commonwealth Environmental Water Office (CEWO) response to the requirements of the Water Act 2007 and the MDBA’s Basin Plan.
This project will develop an updated set of environmental objectives and flow recommendations for the Lower Broken Creek, using the FLOWS method.
This Collaboration Project aims to provide quality scientific research that is highly valued and utilised by water policy and management.
The Murray-Darling Basin Environmental Water Knowledge and Research (MDB EWKR) Project will improve the best science information available to support the evolving needs of environmental water managers.
This project started in 1980 after concern for river health emerged in the 1970s. During its 35-year history many organisations have contributed to the project's unique database.
This project investigates the impact of mining on rivers in Victoria.
