Understanding and modelling catchments during and after drought

Start time: 12.00pm AEDT. Explore the long-term impacts of droughts on catchment runoff and discuss issues with current modelling approaches used to assess water resource impact.
Understanding and modelling catchments during and after drought

 

The effect of drought on catchment runoff can linger for a decade or more. Understanding of this behaviour has advanced, but it is still not well represented in models used for water resource assessment. This webinar provides an update on the science, modelling and management implications.

Dr Murray Peel is a Senior Lecturer and ARC Future Fellow in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering at the University of Melbourne. He has a PhD (Geography) and a BSc (Hons) from the University of Melbourne.

His research interests include catchment hydrology; hydroclimatology; understanding the drivers of inter-annual variability of annual precipitation and runoff around the world; understanding and modelling the hydrologic impacts of land use change; understanding and modelling the hydrologic impacts of climate change and the uncertainty around those projections; improving hydrologic modelling under changing conditions; and drawing hydroclimatology insights from palaeoclimatology information. His research and consulting activities have produced over 100 publications, including 73 articles in international journals and 9 book chapters.
