How are water models used?

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.
