Key capabilities

Our key capabilities for catchment management include: managing the risks associated with dissolved organic matter; lake restoration; land cover mapping; and measuring and enhancing natural capital.

Many water managers are facing the challenge of trying to manage catchments to meet a complex mix of competing demands. The diverse demands include meeting targets for improving water quality, food security, carbon capture for climate change mitigation, biodiversity, soil health, recreation and tourism. 

Our multi-disciplinary research covers a broad range of ecosystem services and how these can be optimised across catchments. We supply data, models and tools to inform decisions on catchment management and help water managers to identify the most effective solutions to these challenges.
