Environment Institute - Water Research Centre

The University of Adelaide Australia

Postgraduate Forums

The Water Research Centre ran a programme of quarterly forums between 2005 and 2008 covering a range of topics from stormwater management, constructed wetlands and smart drains in the Upper South East to palaeo-ecology of diatom communities in estuaries, wetlands and mangroves.  Other discussions included suggestions for better management of water resources and options for future careers.

Postgraduate forums continue to be run by the Environment Institute and have been broadened to include topics and fieldtrips relevant to all of the Environment Institute's research areas.  Information on current postgraduate forums can be found here.
