We support Australia’s ability to observe the impact of drought and water availability and are committed to optimising and sustaining its use.
We identify the location, quantity and quality of Australia’s groundwater resources to support sustainable water management and the wellbeing and prosperity of our agricultural and regional communities.
provide a better understanding of Australia’s landscape and water vulnerabilities for all sectors to plan, prepare and reduce exposure to natural hazards, improving community safety now and into the future.
We engage with different sectors to provide assessments and address new challenges as they emerge and are collaborating to deliver a complete understanding of our changing landscape and the nations surface and groundwater resources.
We are working towards a complete map of Australia’s groundwater system with estimated resource volumes.
Our Researchers are committed to growing our knowledge base to prepare for challenges of the future.
Our open-source data is accessed to develop new technology to solve Australia’s challenges of drought, water vulnerability and exposure to natural hazards, that are exacerbated with a changing landscape.
