Modelling and Data Analysis

The Water Group has been at the forefront of modelling and simulation for more than 30 years.

The flow of water and pollutants through surface and subsurface processes is complex. Models are important tools in understanding these processes. They can also predict the consequences to water quantity and quality.

Our group has developed pioneering software-based approaches for hydrological and hydraulic modelling. We have designed cutting-edge tools focused on management practices, sediment movement and pollution.

Recently, we have been using network and agent-based models. These have provided better assessment of flood and climate impacts on infrastructure and society.

These are important research tools. They have been, and are being, used to shape government strategy.
