Biogeochemical Modelling Tools and Applications

The Blue Economy CRC will host it’s next webinar on Wednesday 17th March, 3.30pm – 5pm (AEDT) on ‘Biogeochemical Modelling Tools and Applications’.

Facilitated by Dr Beth Fulton, CSIRO the webinar will feature presentations from Louise Bruce, BMT and Dr Karen Wild-Allen, CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere.

Biogeochemical modelling involves creating detailed mathematical models of water (e.g. coastal or ocean water) capturing how it moves about in 3D space and its environmental properties (temperature, oxygen, nutrient levels).

This modelling of water column flow and water and sediment properties have come a long way in the last century. It is an exciting and fast-moving field that is increasingly applied and used to support decision making from fine scales (within a day) to long-term planning.

Whether you are completely new to the field and just wondering how outputs from such models could be used, or you are familiar but interested in an update on what these models can deliver and what that could mean for your industry or sector. link into this webinar to see some case study examples of how these models operate and how they are being used in aquaculture and other ocean industries.

The first presentation from Louise will discuss the application of innovative advances in biogeochemical modelling tools to support industry towards achieving their sustainable development goals.

Dr Karen Wild-Allen will discuss the SIMA Austral Project: integrated modelling, data services and decision support tools to improve the sustainability of salmon aquaculture in Chile.

Registrations are now open.
