Examples of current research are:
- theoretical, numerical, laboratory and field investigations of the movement of nutrients and pollutants in lakes, inland and coastal waters;
- flow instabilities, turbulence, and mixing in density stratified flows;
- sediment transport in rivers and tailings ponds;
- hydrologic modelling for flood control planning and management studies;
- river restoration;
- urban hydrology;
- application of optimization techniques and decision analysis to hydraulic design, the operation of multi-purpose reservoirs, lake water and river quality problems, fishery management and the design of water resource systems;
- development of basin planning methods;
- hydrologic data gathering network design;
- wave damping and diffraction and wave induced loading of structures.
