Globally, surface water quality deterioration is an important issue exacerbated by increasing urbanisation, intensified agricultural activities and climate change. To mitigate this increase in waterway pollution there is a strong need for effective catchment management strategies. However, this is currently limited by: (1) our lack of understanding of the key processes and mechanisms driving water quality change in waterways, and (2) our inability to predict future water quality change. To address these, we need to improve our ability to understand and model water quality. This improved capacity will enable us to better identify important water quality changes under various land use, land ma..
