UWA's Centre for Water and Spatial Science (CWSS) provides evidence-based solutions to complex water and spatial challenges.
Through partnerships across industry, government, and non-governmental organizations, CWSS provides science-based solutions locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
The Centre for Water and Spatial Science's mission is to "Seek new water knowledge in a changing climate". CWSS is dedicated to understanding and addressing evolving environmental challenges.
The CWSS focuses on five themes:
- Water in a Changing Climate
Catchment to Coasts
Data Driven Discovery and Spatial Analytics
Research Teaching Nexus
The changing climate challenges our ability to manage food and water security, economic wellbeing and the environment. Understanding catchments, rivers, aquifers, estuarine systems and coasts, and how they respond to the changing climate must be at the forefront of responding to this challenge. Spatial data, satellite data, drones, and translational research with industry underpin our ability to gain a deeper understanding of these issues.
Together we will identify solutions to the world's big problems.
