B Science (Hons), M Science, PhD
Head of Discipline, Civil Engineering, Griffith School of Engineering
Professor Lemckert has active research interests in the fields of physical limnology, coastal systems, environmental monitoring techniques, environmental fluid dynamics, coastal zone management and engineering education. Along with his postgraduate students and research partners he is undertaking research studies on water treatment pond design (for recycling purposes), the dynamics of drinking water reservoirs, the study of whale migration in South East Queensland Waters, end ocean mixing dynamics. He is also an active member of the CRC Polymer, where he is leading a study on the evaluation of evaporation reduction techniques.
