Land and water resources are a key determinant of the aquatic ecosystem’s health
We provide a framework for protecting and sustaining water quality and quality at the catchment scale. Our research explores how improved land management, including agricultural and mining practices, can reduce pollution and improve river health.
We help protect the Great Barrier Reef
Our assessments of land-based pollution are fundamental to mitigating the effects of diffuse pollution on the Great Barrier Reef. We have tools to trace sources of nutrients across catchments and to assess the capacity of wetlands and other natural and engineering systems to reduce nutrient inputs to this sensitive ecosystem.
