Our key capabilities include monitoring water availability and seasonal water availability forecasting.

Our scientists develop water resource management methods and tools that government and industry can use to address increasing demands on our freshwater resources. Drawing on our long-term data sets, and on experiments carried out at our specialist research facilities, we develop models and decision-support tools to underpin integrated water resource management at local, regional, national and global scales.

Water is a resource on which all life depends. Yet, across the planet, 30 per cent of people do not have access to clean water. Our scientists seek to understand the complex factors that affect the availability and quality of water resources now and into the future, from local to global scales.
