SA IAH Chapter/NCGRT groundwater modellers’ forum #3

Thursday 14 November, 2013

IAH Australia and the NCGRT have joined up to present a series of groundwater modelling forums.  This series is an opportunity for Adelaide’s groundwater modellers to come together and discuss a host of issues relevant to consultancies, agencies and researchers.


Predicting the impacts of climate change on groundwater resources is not a straightforward exercise, given the ‘cascade of uncertainty’ that occurs when outputs from one model are used as inputs to another which has its own uncertainties and simplifications. The desire for simplicity and ‘magic’ number answers may result in highly misleading outcomes from such predictions. Four experts will briefly discuss the various modelling processes and associated uncertainties before a spirited open discussion about possible best practice methodologies to prevent misunderstandings and distorted predictions of groundwater impacts.


  • Russell Crosbie – Climate models
  • Graham Green – Rainfall/recharge models
  • Craig Simmons – Groundwater models
  • Hugh Middlemis – Groundwater modelling guidelines

Date: Wednesday 18th December
Time: 1:00-3:00pm (afternoon tea will be provided)
Location: Flinders University City Campus Level 1, Room 1,  182 Victoria Square Adelaide SA 5000 (NE Corner, former Reserve Bank)
