North QLD Field Trip – Floodplains: A System with Many Moving Parts?
The QWMN is improving the state’s capacity to model its surface and groundwater resources and their quality, by providing the tools, information and collaborative platforms to support best-practice use of water models, and the uptake of their results by policy makers and natural resource managers.
Water modelling is a diverse area of activity that involves developing mathematical and logic-based representations of real world relationships between different variables.
Water models are developed and used in Queensland to inform decision making across a range of water policy, planning and management issues, including, but not limited to, water resource planning, groundwater impact assessment, flood risk management and Great Barrier Reef water quality improvement.
