2019 Call for expressions of interest

The Queensland Water Modelling Network is looking to support a number of projects as a result of this EOI process. Themes include landscape restoration and redesign; and water planning, integration and management. Project outlines will be assessed and short-listed applicants invited to submit a more detailed proposal. Funded projects will be delivered over the next eighteen months with final delivery by June 2020. There are two funding levels, less than $50,000 and less than $100,000.

If you would like to join a notification list to hear about EOI opportunities as they become available, please send an email to .

Improving how gully erosion and river sediment transport processes are represented in Queensland catchment models (PDF, 2.1M)

This report reviews the current understanding of gully erosion and river sediment transport processes in Queensland catchments, and details how these processes have been represented in water quality models over the last 20 years. Developed through a consensus approach, the report identifies the research, data collection and conceptual design needs to improve these modelling practices, to make them more relevant to the growing needs of land management agencies and communities.

Queensland Water Modelling Network Water Model Catalogue (PDF, 2.3M)

This catalogue provides a concise overview and collation of the major water models currently used by the Queensland Government. It is a resource for researchers and students to better understand the scope and range of models being applied by Queensland Government agencies and utilise these tools and applications for teaching and collaborative research projects.

Queensland Water Modelling Network Good Modelling Practice Principles (PDF, 1.5M)

This paper synthesises existing knowledge and experience on good water modelling practices and principles. It provides guidance for new and existing water model development efforts and informs end users and decision makers about what distinguishes good modelling practices from poor ones.

Queensland Water Modelling Network Technical Forum Summary: November 2017 (PDF, 7.8M) 

This document summarises the presentations given and issues discussed at the Forum attended by representatives from government agencies, public research bodies, universities, statutory authorities, not-for-profit organisations and the private sector.

P2R Program Integration of Paddock Scale Modelling and Source Final Report: November 2018 (PDF, 15M)

Modelling of pollutant loads entering the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is undertaken as part of the Paddock to Reef Integrated Monitoring, Modelling and Reporting Program (P2R). This project has investigated methods for integrating paddock and catchment scale modelling to improve representation of daily constituent concentrations going into the reef.
