Water in the Anthropocene: predicting how we interact with our modified environment

In predicting the trajectory of future climate, water and ecosystems, we can no longer ignore the many ways in which human feedbacks modify our natural systems.

The 5th national OzEWEX workshop will explore how well we understand stores and fluxes of water and energy at the landscape scale subject human influences including greenhouse gas emissions, landscape, soil and vegetation modification, water extraction and river regulation.

The topic will be approached from a biophysical perspective but also from social, economic, ecological, engineering and policy perspectives.figure2a
