Project Member(s): Skilbeck, C.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Infrastructure)

Start year: 2007

Summary: The projects supported by this facility are esential to: sustainable management of Sydney's surface and groundwater; understanding food webs and trophic interactions in Sydney Harbour and elsewhere on the eastern seaboard; developing predictive models for the impacts of climate change on Australia's forests, especially carbon sequestration and water yield; understanding the trade offs involved in managing fire risks through prescribed burning, especially trade offs involving carbon and water; and understanding and predicting air quality and the effects of emissions from cars, industry, fires and natural sources.
