Hydrology and flood assessment

Rainfall-runoff and floodplain modelling that uses a range of software (including TUFLOW) to determine flood risks, assess mitigation options and promote sustainable land use.

Metocean criteria

Our leading meteorological and oceanographic datasets and analytics support the safe design and operation of offshore structures.

Environmental considerations for the built environment

We use computational flow dynamics (CFD) to simulate virtual airflow and thermal conditions surrounding a building or urban environment to assess and optimise it before construction.

Water quality modelling

We simulate receiving water bodies, such as lakes, rivers, reservoirs and coastal embayments to support environmental assessments by forecasting likely changes to water quality from projects such as wastewater treatment plants, industrial discharges, aquaculture and other outfalls. 

Oil spill emergency planning

We use specialised oil spill software to help predict the location and environmental impact of an oil spill, enabling better planning and preventative measures.

Groundwater contamination

We use a range of groundwater models to support environmental assessments for contaminated land remediation projects. These models simulate changes to groundwater levels and quality from both point and diffuse pollutant sources. 

Catchment and watershed runoff

Our catchment modelling simulates the collection of rainfall over a natural drainage area and the subsequent transport of flow, nutrients, sediments and pollutants, which helps users understand the impacts of land use on downstream waterways. Our catchment models integrate seamlessly with our receiving water quality models to help land managers mitigate environment impacts, especially for sensitive areas such as wetlands and marine parks.

Lake and reservoir dynamics

Simulating circulation and water quality impacts across impounded lakes and storages, our models can take into account volumetric capacity, stratification and nutrient levels to predict and develop appropriate management responses to issues in impoundments such as algal blooms and microbial contamination. 

Coastal environments

Our modelling of complex coastal environments helps customers understand hydrodynamic, water quality and sedimentation processes to forecast and manage the environmental impact of their projects in coastal zones. This includes coastal erosion modelling and coastline evolution under the influence of shoreline recession and sea level rise.

Geographic information systems (GIS) and spatial data management

GIS enables customers to visualise data in new ways and bring together disparate datasets. By integrating GIS data into our software tools, we offer you a unique perspective and valuable insights.
