Hydrology and Geo-Information Sciences Laboratory

Who we are

banner

Water in Australia is a critical resource, it has historically shaped and formed the landscape and it both drives, and reacts to, more recent land use change. The Hydrology and Geo-Information Sciences Laboratory (HGISL) combines the quantitative strengths of a group of staff members with a clear focus on modelling landscape processes in space and time.

Our skills cover Hydrological modelling, GIS and Remote Sensing, Water Quality and Biology, Environmental modelling, Ecohydrology and Statistics.

More detail about our activities can be found on the "What we do" page of this website

Aim

Our aim is to quantify the natural and anthropogenic variability in time and space of landscape processes with a main focus on hydrological and rural landuse processes


Our interest focuses on the interactions between climate, landuse, soils and water in landscapes. More specifically, we are interested in the highly variable and non-linear processes. This drives the need to develop novel stochastic and hydrological simulation approaches to forecast and predict water quantity and quality, land use change and the feedbacks between water and landuse.
