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.



CHUTE

CHUTE is a spreadsheet program for the design and analysis of rock chutes. Rock chutes can be employed in the restoration of rivers and channels to stabilise an erosion head or to reduce the overall grade of the channel.


Concept

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


Eco-Evidence

 

More Information about Eco Evidence is available via the

eWater website 



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.


eFlow-Predictor

eFlow uses environmental flow objectives to generate an altered flow regime and determine how much additional water would be required to achieve the new flow regime.


MCAT

MCAT (Multi Criteria Analysis Tool) is an investment decision support tool that optimises environmental expenditure using multi-criteria analysis and combinatorial optimisation techniques.


RAP

RAP (River Analysis Package) is a collection of 3 tools: Hydraulic Analysis - examines the hydraulic characteristics of river channels to determine the optimal discharge for a river reach based on specified rules. Time Series Analysis - calculates summary statistics of time series data, including hydrological metrics. Time Series Manager - manipulates and manages time series data.


RIPRAP

RIPRAP is a spreadsheet program for the design of rock lining (rip-rap) bank protection. It provides a range of rock sizes to be used depending on bank angle and depth chosen.
