This unit brings together the knowledge of the multiple land and water processes that sustain the freshwater ecosystems and communities of Australia's tropical north. Our focus is on understanding how physical, chemical and biotic patterns and processes interact across spatial and temporal scales. We will integrate hydrological, biogeochemical, geomorphological and ecological knowledge at scales ranging from catchments to individual rivers, wetlands and springs. We will consider both surface water and groundwater processes and their interactions. Theoretical understating will be linked with practical field experiences that focus on the wetlands and rivers of Australia's wet/dry tropics.
