The surface processes and groundwater processes research area includes wetland, coastal and riverine research, marine geological processes, and historical hydroclimates. The coastal and riverine research focuses on quantifying and modelling the hydro-morphological and ecological dynamics of riverine, estuarine, and coastal environments, using state-of-the-art field equipment (including drones), a suite of laboratory facilities, and an experimental river basin. The wetland environments research integrates ecology, geosciences, engineering and geoinformatics to develop knowledge and sustainable management advice for wetland environments globally. Geological research is focused on understanding groundwater dynamics, including modelling the impacts of climage change on groundwater and predicting groundwater flooding, and deep-sea morphodynamic processes. Our innovative interdisciplinary approach often incorporates field survey and monitoring with remote sensing, geographic information system (GIS) and modelling, as well as analysing historical documents, to address issues associated with weather events, sea level rise and climate change, sediment processes, biodiversity, restoration, and pollution.
