Over the last 30 years, The Centre for Water Research at The University of Western Australia has developed a deep understanding of the underlying processes operating in surface waters at environmental scales, ranging from catchments, rivers, lakes, wetlands, estuaries and coastal seas.
Our fundamental understanding has guided the development of hardware and software tools that have been successfully applied to the operation and management of surface waters, including optimisation of pollutant fate and transport, water quality forecasting, flood warning and control, hydropower generation, and sustainable management.
Our methodology combines the design and deployment of field instrumentation, development and installation of data management and visualisation software, process-based numerical modelling, laboratory investigations, and expert scientific analysis. An integrated team of scientists, engineers and technicians provides international best-practice to ensure that the solutions offered by CWR are always innovative and of the highest quality.
CWR expertise and technologies are in use with clients across the globe, including Australia, Singapore, Japan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Germany, UK, Italy, the US, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Colombia.
