Optimising Seasonal Decisions for Environmental Water Use
Grant number: LP130100174 | Funding period: 2014 - 2018
This project will develop a tool to optimise the use of environmental water, drawing on seasonal forecasts of streamflow and water price, and predicted ecological responses to changing flows. This tool will strengthen the effectiveness of the government organisations responsible for managing Australia's environmental water reserves.
