The Soil&Water seminar on Weds, March 21st at 12pm will be given by Assoc.Prof. Ryan Vogwill, from UWA/Curtin/DEC. All welcome!

“Toolibin Lake 2010, combining hydrogeology, soil physics, remote sensing and plant ecophysiology to explain the response to management interventions. “

About the speaker: Originally from Canada, Ryan Vogwill joined the Department of Environment and Conservation in 2006 and had previously worked for the Department of Water after completing his PhD at Curtin University. In his PhD he used fractals to model pore space as well as regional scale flow modelling and local scale investigations to look at the capacity of groundwater abstraction to impact on the 150,000 migratory wader birds, which come to Broome annually. Prior to joining DEC and UWA Ryan worked on Gnangara Mound rationalising the triple bottom line (social, economic and environmental benefits of water) using the Perth Regional Aquifer Modelling System (PRAMS). Recently he has pursued this issue over a wider area, the Wheatbelt, with a focus on the protection of key biodiversity assets in the Natural Diversity Recovery Catchments. Ryan is now a joint Associate Professor in Hydrogeology at UWA and Curtin.
