Research projects by QUT
the following research projects are currently being conducted by QUT postgraduates and staff
A. Lockyer Valley groundwater flow model
This is a PhD project by Pavel Dvoracek entitled "Integrated whole-of-catchment model of groundwater resource and processes: Lockyer Valley, southeast Queensland". The project commences February, 2006, and will develop a MODFLOW based groundwater model, which will link with the existing NR&M model of the central zone. This project will incorporate early models developed.
Principal supervisor: Dr Malcolm Cox, NRS-QUT
Associate supervisor: Andrew Durick, NR&M
B. Visualisation for management
A research project that is a joint initiative between School of Mathematical Sciences, QUT (Prof Ian Turner), High Performance Computing, ITS (Dr Joseph Young), School of Natural Resource Sciences, QUT (Dr Malcolm Cox)and Andrew Durick (Department of Natural Resources & Mines). This project is using new technologies to develop 3-D visualisation and animation models to support management of water resources. Research Assistant is Mark Dwyer. Applications for additional funding are current.
C. Stable isotope hydrology
An ongoing staff project investigating the character of stable isotopes of hydrogen and oxygen in all groundwater (alluvium, sandstones and basalt) to determine hydrological processes such as recharge, mixing and evaporation. Principal researcher is Malcolm Cox. Application for additional funding is current.
