The SCEVO initiative aims to further our understanding and appreciation of the Swan-Canning Estuary in Perth, Western Australia
This site displays a variety of historical, recent and forecast simulations of the Swan-Canning Estuary, based on 3-D simulations of hydrodynamic-biogeochemical models.
SCEVO serves as a central information portal to find out more about the Swan-Canning system.
The Swan-Canning Estuary lies at the heart of Perth, Western Australia This site is an portal to help inform the community how it works and what it is doing

Low oxygen conditions that occur in the Swan and Canning rivers have been improved by artificial oxygenation - click here for more simulations assessing oxygenation dynamics.
During February 2017, the Avon catchment and Swan Coastal Plain received an exceptional amount of rain, with over 100mm in 24 hours and a total event rainfall exceeding 120mm - see model simulations here.
One of the challenges with complex ecological models is reducing error and quantifying uncertainty. As part of an ARC Discovery Project we are working with Prof Justin Brookes from the University of Adelaide to simulate the Lower Murray River and Lake Alexandrina using novel data-streams to undertake an advanced process validation of the model.
