Monitoring Evaluation and Research (Flow-MER) Program in the Gwydir and Warrego-Darling Selected Areas
In conjunction with UNE we help to direct and undertake the Gwydir and Warrego-Darling MER programs for the Commonwealth Environmental Water Office (CEWO). Our contribution includes: helping to design the monitoring program, leading teams of scientists to capture information on water quality; micro- and macro-invertebrate survey; fish; frog; waterbird and vegetation. We also communicate the outcomes of the science, not just the detailed annual reports but to a broader audience, both in-person and online. We have really been enjoying the challenges of reaching as large and diverse and audience as possible.
This is a big, complex project that involves a team of many scientists and key stakeholders, on the land and within government.
Our very own Dr Paul Frazier presented some of the outcomes of Flow-MER Project at the RBMS's River Fest, 2020. Click here to view the recording of his presentation.
