Wetland hydrology management in Australia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review


Changes to the hydrologic regime of wetlands is a vital factor affecting the natural diversity and conservation values of wetlands. The management of wetland hydrology thus forms an integral part of wetland management. This paper describes current practices in the management of natural wetlands in Australia. Discussions will focus on the process involved in developing a water management strategy for natural wetlands, addressing the many issues related to wetland identification and value assessment, definition of wetland hydrologic and hydraulic characteristics, establishment of their water requirements and the development of appropriate structural and non-structural measures to facilitate delivery of the required water.
