AUSRIVAS Macroinvertebrate Predictive Modelling

AUSRIVAS (Australian River Assessment System) is a rapid prediction system used to assess the biological health of Australian rivers. These models predict the aquatic macroinvertebrate fauna expected to occur at a site in the absence of environmental stress, such as pollution or habitat degradation, to which the fauna collected at a site can be compared. Thus, AUSRIVAS produces a biological assessment that can be used to indicate the overall ecological health of the site.



Best Practice Modelling Guidelines

Guidelines for water management modelling eWater has published these guidelines to promote a best practice, quality assured approach to application of modelling tools, primarily to address water management problems, and provision of decision support to end-users of model results. The Guidelines for water management modelling: Towards best-practice model application are the first of the hierarchy of more detailed supporting guidelines for model domains relevant to eWater Source. The latest supporting documents are: Guidelines for modelling water sharing rules Guidelines for rainfall-runoff modelling Guidelines for groundwater-surfacewater interactions modelling. Guidelines for modelling rainfall-funoff modelling Guidelines for modelling groundwater-surface water interaction


Concept

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


Eco-Modeller

Eco Modeller is a tool for building, storing and running quantitative models of ecological responses to physical and biological factors, for use in comparing the merits of alternative natural resource management scenarios.

Source (public version)

Source (public version) is a special version of eWater Source – Australia's national hydrological modelling platform. It is designed to simulate all aspects of water resource systems to support Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) studies in urban, catchments and river basins including human and ecological influences.



TIME

The Invisible Modelling Environment (TIME) is a software development framework for creating, testing and delivering hydrological and environmental simulation models and as a foundation for plugins to eWater Source. TIME includes support for the representation, management and visualisation of a variety of data types, as well as support for testing, integrating and calibrating simulation models.

Water-Quality-Analyser

Water Quality Analyser is for water managers, scientists and engineers who need to analyse time-series, monitor in-stream water quality, estimate pollutant loads, or set future water quality targets.

 

With a straight-forward user interface and a focus on visualising data inputs and outputs, Water Quality Analyser helps to identify water quality trends and simplifies the path to a summary assessment.
