Modelling floodplain inundation for environmental flows: Gwydir wetlands, Australia

Powell, Susan; Letcher, Rebecca; Croke, Barry

Description

Floodplain wetlands rely on catchment flows to maintain the flooding cycles critical to their ecological integrity. The development of water resources has significantly altered the flow patterns in many river systems. Recent research into water requirements for wetland systems shows that duration, frequency, depth, timing and extent of flooding are the most important influences on ecological communities. Modelling these systems is hampered by a lack of data and inappropriate model structures....[Show more]
