Project Leader

About

Albert Van Dijk leads the Water and Landscape Dynamics Group at the Fenner School of Environment and Society.

From 1996 to 2003, he studied aquifer hydrology, tropical land management and the carbon cycle, and lectured in ecohydrology at VU University Amsterdam. From 2003 to 2012, he was with CSIRO Land and Water, investigating the influence of vegetation management on land and water resources, the Murray-Darling Basin water system, environmental remote sensing, model-data fusion, and monitoring and forecasting water availability and drought. Albert led development of the Australian Water Resources Assessment system, a large observing and modelling system that underpins several of the Bureau of Meteorology’s water information services. He has authored more than 130 publications. He is adjunct science leader with CSIRO Land and Water, and chairs the Australian Energy and Water Exchange Initiative (OzEWEX).
