2016 Distinguished Lecture Melbourne
Jacobs (Level 16)
452 Flinders Street

18 October 2016


Dr. Rebecca Nelson: NCGRT / IAH Distinguished Lecturer

We are thrilled to have Dr. Rebecca Nelson as the 2016 NCGRT / IAH Distinguished Lecturer. Dr. Nelson will tour Australia delivering her lecture: Regulating the cumulative impacts of groundwater withdrawals: Australia and further afield.

Abstract: The regulation of groundwater extraction has shifted dramatically through an intense era of intense water reforms spanning three decades. A key outstanding issue is controlling withdrawals with an eye to their cumulative impacts on groundwater resources and dependent systems. Such control is complicated not just by the incremental additive effects of many small withdrawals, but also by interactive and synergistic effects. Read the full abstract here.
