Tanya has significant experience in quantifying the impacts of vegetation on water resources in many locations around Australia and has more recently undertaken remote sensing and ecophysiological research to improve our understanding of the effect of flood regimes on the health of water dependent ecosystems on the Murray-Darling Basin floodplains. Tanya’s research focuses on groundwater dependent ecosystems; connections between flow and ecology (Australia and Nepal); surface water and groundwater interactions; floodplain inundation modelling; spatial models to predict the effect of range of floodplain environmental watering management options on floodplain vegetation health; and water balance projects within the Murray-Darling Basin which quantify the evapotranspiration of stressed and non-stressed riparian vegetation. Tanya’s research identifies the response of vegetation to inundation via environmental watering to determine water requirements of floodplain vegetation to assist with integrated Basin water planning and management.
