Storm Chasers: the challenges of sampling storms

"Often during flood events, water from agricultural catchments will erode productive agricultural soils and carry large loads of sediment and nutrients to downstream estuaries and coastal areas. This can threaten the provision of safe drinking water for humans and the ecology of marine ecosystems, as well as sometimes necessitating costly sediment dredging and disposal operations."

Evaluating a daily water balance model (AWRA-L) to represent streamflow intermittency

Author's Dr Songyan Yu and Associate Professor Mark Kennard, Read Time: 622 words, about 3 minutes. There is a growing interest globally in the spatial distribution and temporal dynamics of intermittently flowing streams and rivers. Previous studies have predominantly relied on the use of gauged streamflow data to make inferences about the distribution of intermittent streams. [...]
