Lake Resilience
Resilience of lakes to water level manipulation

As part of an new research project, Dr Matthew Hipsey and team are working with Prof Leon Barmuta from the University of Tasmania and Dr Carolyn Maxwell from HydroTasmania to assess how Tasmanian Lake ecosystems that are part of their hydro-power scheme respond to water level manipulation.

GLM Multi-lake Comparison Project (GLM-MLCP)

Dr. Louise Bruce leads the GLM-MLCP which is a community driven initiative where numerous researchers from the GLEON and AEMON networks collectively simulate numerous lakes using a common approach to setup and assessment.

Data-assimilation within GLM for Lake Alexandrina

One of the challenges with complex ecological models is reducing error and quantifying uncertainty. As part of an ARC Discovery Project we are working with Prof Justin Brookes from the University of Adelaide to simulate the Lower Murray River and Lake Alexandrina using novel data-streams to undertake an advanced process validation of the model.

The Influence of Climate Change on Cyanobacterial Blooms

Prof Justin Brookes and Dr Anna Rigosi from the University of Adelaide has recently completed a project funded by the US Water Research Foundation (WRF) to assess how cyanobacterial risk changes under climate change scenarios in parallel to different nutrient management targets.
