BC2C

BC2C (Biophysical Capacity to Change) is a tool for estimating catchment scale water and salt export quantities, following changes in landuse in upland catchments. Intended for use with regional data sets, it gives an indication of changes under different scenarios (e.g. change in percentage tree cover) that can be used to pin-point and prioritise areas for further investigation.


CLASS-CGM

CLASS-CGM (Crop Growth Model) can be used to simulate growth of main C3 field crop types such as wheat, barley, canola, sunflowers and C4 field crop types such as maize and sorghum. CLASS-CGM can also be used to simulate crop growth impacts on water balance from CLASS-U3M-1D.


CLASS-PGM

CLASS-PGM (Pasture Growth Model) can be used to simulate growth of composite pasture types of multiple perennial or annual pasture species and to simulate pasture growth impacts on water balance from CLASS-U3M-1D.


CLASS-U3M-1D

CLASS-U3M-1D (Unsaturated Moisture Movement Model) can be used for estimating recharge, plant water use and soil evaporation across the soil profile at daily time steps using the Richards' equation.


CMSS

CMSS (Catchment Management Support System) predicts average annual loads of pollutants (usually Total Phosphorus and Total Nitrogen) at the sub-catchment level, according to different land use types.


Concept

Concept is a conceptual diagram drawing package that can be used to communicate dynamic relationships between multiple elements.


FCFC

FCFC (Forest Cover Flow Change model) is used to adjust daily time series observed or simulated flow records for significant changes in forest cover. It is applicable to small to medium unregulated catchments with major changes in the proportion of forest cover and can be used to adjust inputs to larger scale catchment models.


SedNet

SedNet identifies sources and sinks of sediment and nutrients in river networks and predicts spatial patterns of erosion and sediment load. This tool can help target management actions to improve water quality and riverine habitat.
