Seasonal Streamflow Forecasting for Water Management: Advances and Opportunities

Invited presentation at the 5th Ozewex workshop: Water in the Anthropocene

A summary of the advances in the dynamic streamflow forecasting system developed as part of a research partnership between University of Adelaide and Bureau of Meteorology.

Key Outcomes
- Advances in Dynamical Streamflow Forecasting System have lead to reliable and sharper seasonal streamflow forecasts that have been operationalised by the Bureau
- Achieves Bureau’s strategic objective of high-quality seasonal streamflow forecasts Australia-wide
- Future research focus will be development of sub-seasonal streamflow forecasts at 0-30 day lead time at river basin scale to address a key user need
- Achieving societal impact from research advances relies on a committed and passionate team of researchers, govt agencies, water industry and users working together
