Areas of application

Catchment hydrology and yield analysis

Evaluate water yield and hydrology across catchments to optimise resource allocation and planning.

Climate change resilience and impact

Model the effects of climate variability on river systems to guide adaptation and resilience strategies.

Contaminant fate and transport

Simulate the dispersal and concentration of pollutants in riverine environments.

Dam break impact assessments

Evaluate dam failure consequences for improved emergency and mitigation plans.

Drought and water scarcity

Analyse river flow under drought conditions to develop effective water scarcity management strategies.

Ecological restoration projects

Model river dynamics to support the design and evaluation of restoration projects.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

Analyse the impact of development on rivers to support project compliance and environmental protection.

Eutrophication mitigation strategies

Model nutrient loading and its effects in river systems to develop strategies for reducing eutrophication.

Flood risk assessment and management

Forecast river flooding scenarios to inform flood risk reduction and emergency preparedness.

Forecasting and early warning systems

Enhance flood and drought response with accurate, real-time hydrological forecasting.

Habitat response assessments

Assess how riverine changes affect habitats and species distribution for biodiversity conservation.

Integrated water resources management

Support IWRM efforts by modelling interactions between hydrological, ecological, and anthropogenic factors.

Sediment transport and morphology

Analyse sediment dynamics in rivers to manage sedimentation issues and guide riverine landscape management.
