Environment Institute - Water Research Centre

The University of Adelaide Australia

The Water Research Centre brings together scientists, engineers and economists to address water management issues of national and international significance.

Environmental Water Efficiency: How do we best allocate water to catchments to optimise environmental, ecological and social outcomes?

Water Quality in Catchments: Understand the processes in catchments that influence water quality.

Hydrology and Climate Impacts: Improve rainfall-runoff-recharge-water quality relationships and better understanding the interactions between climate variability and change, landscape characteristics and streamflow.

Water Assets: Research on how to more efficiently plan and manage water distribution assets.

The Centre has many Australian and international collaborations, with researchers, industry and management agencies.

Students with an interest in postgraduate study are invited to review potential research topics.

We hold regular presentations of our research results, for other researchers, management agencies and the community and publish a newsletter and blogs.
