Ecohydrology, evapotranspiration and streamflow dynamics, sediment dynamics and geomorphology, catchment evolution, with a particular interest in the hydrologic effects of fire.
The following staff are available to supervise honours and masters research in the field of forests and water.
For more information and potential projects, see the Fire Ecology and Biodiversity group website.
Research into the ecohydrologic impact of forest growth and disturbance at a range of spatial and temporal scales, and disturbance impacts on water quality.
- Fire and climate impacts on evapotranspiration and streamflow
- Forest growth dynamics and hydrology
- Forest disturbance and water quality
- Carbon-water process interactions
Research in forest soil and erosion with a particular focus on the effect of fire on water quality and geomorphology.
- Climate change and future fire impacts on hydrology
- Coevolution of vegetation, soils and fire regimes
- Post fire flash flooding and debris flows
- Ecohydrologic feedbacks in flammable forests
Modelling the effects of climate change on forest dynamics, wildfire and water yield, and the long-term co-evolution of soils, vegetation and landscapes.
Examination of water use and water yields from native and planted forests.
- Comparison of water use in mountain ash and cool temperate rainforest
- Water use of wet sclerophyll understory in wet and dry conditions
- Forest understorey water use
- Species change effects on water supplies
Studies in forest hydrology and landscape change with a focus on sediment transport, micrometeorology and fire.
