Natural Resource Management

AQUAPAK

AQUAPAK is a Windows-based program that has been tailor made for readers of the 2nd edition of the book "Stream Hydrology: an introduction for Ecologists", by Nancy Gordon, Tom McMahon, Brian Finlayson, Chris Gippel and Rory Nathan.

This book was published in 2004 by John Wiley and Sons (ISBN 0-470-84357-8 for hardback and 0-470-84358-6 for paperback editions).

AQUAPAK assumes no prior knowledge on the part of the user other than basic computer keyboard skills. The software is freely available though is governed by a licence that restricts usage to non-commercial purposes.

BaseJumper

BaseJumper is a rapid assessment tool that can be used to provide water resource managers with insights about surface water and groundwater interaction. It provides users with information on the potential impact that anthropogenic influences independent of climate (such as groundwater pumping, land use change, etc) have on the rate of change of baseflow contribution to streamflow.

This tool is expected to be used as a precursor to more detailed modelling or field investigations in areas where baseflow contributions to streamflow are identified as changing over time by this tool. The use of this tool forms part of an integrated management approach to identify and manage rivers with declining baseflow.

In order to download the program we require some contact details about you. This information will only be used for the purpose of maintenance and support of the software, e.g. to inform you when updates to the program are available, or in exceptional circumstances when critical problems have been identified but not yet rectified. The information will be accessed by Jacobs staff and their agents directly responsible for support and maintenance of the software, and will not be released to any other party for any other purpose.

STEDI

The Spatial Tool for Estimating Dam Impacts (STEDI) is a Windows-based computer program that can simulate the impact of farm dams on streamflows at a catchment scale. It can be used to estimate the impact of existing farm dams or possible growth in farm dams. STEDI considers the distribution of farm dam sizes in a catchment, the total volume of farm dams, and rainfall and evaporation inputs. It differentiates between irrigation and stock and domestic dams, and allows for bypass facilities if required. STEDI supersedes the similar program TEDI, and a formal description of the underlying concepts for both programs can be found in two companion papers published in the July 2005 issue of the Australian Journal of Water Resources.
