Environmental flows and ecological assets

Water managed and ‘allocated’ to the environment is commonly known as ‘environmental flows’.  The critical step in determining appropriate environmental flows is predicting how particular changes in river flows might affect natural ecological assets.  This project investigated the relationship between flow and several specific assets of tropical rivers.

The project was led by Professor Peter Davis from the University of Western Australia. He was supported by a range of researchers with different technical expertise from Charles Darwin University, NT Fisheries Research Branch, Griffith University, Monash University and the Australian National University.
