12:00 - SEMINAR - Soil&Water Seminar, Sept19: : "Nitrogen - future challenges for agricultural science" More Information
All welcome!

Title: “Nitrogen – future challenges for agricultural science”

ABSTRACT: Fertilisers currently represent 15-20 per cent of the cost of production wheat grain. This cost will rise with the shortage of raw materials used to make fertiliser, the increasing costs in (...)

16:00 - FREE LECTURE - Structural change in UK pastoral agriculture: what is the end-game? : Structural change in UK pastoral agriculture: what is the end-game? Website | More Information
The past ten years have seen considerable shifts in the patterns of land use and land management practices in the UK, driven mainly by changes in the European Union Common Agricultural Policy, climate change policy in the UK, and wider economic and world food price issues. As the drivers for (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Thesis Presentation: : Hydrodynamic modelling and fluorescent spectral methods for characterising the spatial distribution of phytoplankton. Website | More Information
Identifying structure in aquatic environments and showing the relationship to phytoplankton diversity is challenging because it is difficult to make direct measurements of all relevant variables at the necessary temporal and spatial scales. Two new approaches are demonstrated, which allow (...)

The next Soil&Water Seminar will be Prof. Matthew Tonts from SEE, at 12pm on Weds, Oct 3rd. All welcome!

Title: “The Staples Economy and Regional Development in Western Australia”

Abstract: In the 1930s, Canadian historian Harold Innis developed his 'staples thesis' to (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Extreme rainfall over the south and north Website | More Information
Extreme rainfall over the south and north-west of Western Australia and the Sydney region of NSW over the last fifty years has been modelled using a Bayesian hierarchical approach based on statistical extreme value theory. Spatial variability of the extreme rainfall distribution is modelled using a (...)
Wednesday 10
16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : The seasonal hydrodynamic habitat of the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret, Israel) Website | More Information
Physical processes in lakes are the result of a large number of different mechanisms occurring over a wide range of temporal and spatial scales affecting ecosystem function in a variety of ways. Hence, a deep understanding of the lake hydrodynamics and its variability is essential in understanding (...)
Wednesday 17
8:00 - EVENT - Bike doctor on campus for National Ride to Work Day : Free bike checks by the UWA Bike Doctor Website | More Information
Find out why your bike makes noises, is hard to ride, or why the gears and brakes aren't that great.

Doctor Bike will fix minor mechanical problems and give advice on what's wrong and how to fix it.

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Consistent abundance distributions of marine fishes in an old, climatically buffered, infertile seascape. Website | More Information
Macroecological theory predicts that along direct physiological gradients there will be unimodal abundance distributions of species and consistent rates of assemblage turnover. However, the majority of marine studies that have investigated the realised distribution of species along latitudinal or (...)
Wednesday 24
16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : ‘Tropical Limnology; Is there such a branch of limnology? If so, what does it represent?’ Website | More Information
The branch of limnology often referred to as ‘Tropical’ limnology is represented by lake studies as diverse as those from alpine, high elevation lakes in Papua New Guinea to athallasic saline lakes located in tropical desert climes.

Thus it can be argued that the internal variability in (...)

Wednesday 07
16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Hydrological and biogeochemical pathways in hillslopes of coastal plain catchments: How does seasonality affect phosphorus fate and transport processes? Website | More Information
Nutrient loss from terrestrial ecosystems causes nutrient enrichment in receiving waterways (eutrophication) threatening their water quality and biodiversity values. The Peel-Harvey estuary (WA), RAMSAR-listed wetlands and their contributing waterways in coastal plain catchments in the Peel-Harvey (...)

11:00 - WORKSHOP - Unlocking soil's secrets to open the door to agricultural productivity gains : Soil Biology Workshop with international, national and local speakers Website | More Information
As the world population grows and we are facing a 70% increase of food demand over the next four decades,the need to retain versatile and productive soils for food production and to maximise the output from the land is one of the most important issues of our time. This symposium will bring together (...)
Wednesday 14
16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Numerical modeling of the Long-term transport, dispersion, and accumulation of Black Sea Pollutants into the North Aegean coastal waters. Website | More Information
The present ecological situation of the Black Sea in relation to increased shipping from ports in the Black Sea, the prospect of considerably high tanker traffic carrying Caspian and Central Asian oil through the Aegean and the excessive loads of nutrients and other harmful substances flowing from (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Cherishing our place: Do women have a special role? : Guest lecture by Professor Carmen Lawrence Website | More Information
There are two glaring omissions from orthodox models and theories of economic growth: the planet and the human families and communities which live within it. These models neglect the fact that the human economy is embedded in the biosphere which consists of living things, the products of living (...)
Wednesday 21
16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : The role of inland aquatic ecosystems on green house gas fluxes. Website | More Information
Inland aquatic ecosystems, including rivers, lakes, ponds and reservoirs, occupy a small part of the landscape, but play a key role as a conduit for gas exchange with the atmosphere.

This is dependent on a much larger active surface that previously recognised, intense metabolism in (...)
Wednesday 28
16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Agricultural land management strategies to reduce phosphorus loads in the Gippsland Lakes, Australia. Website | More Information
A target to reduce phosphorus flows into the Gippsland Lakes in south-eastern Australia by 40% in order to improve water quality has previously been established by stakeholders. This target, like many others worldwide, has been set mostly on the basis of environmental concerns, with limited (...)
