Earlier this month, Morphum Environmental Director Damian Young had the pleasure of giving a keynote presentation to attendees of a river research symposium held at the University of Auckland.
The symposium was broken into segments covering fluvial processes, and modelling and instrumentation. Its purpose was to communicate the current research around enhancing rivers and freshwater systems. This was approached from many different angles via the inclusion of speakers from the University of Auckland’s School of Environment and a number of schools within the Department of Engineering.
Damian’s presentation focused on the rivers and streams of Auckland, covering issues, management options and the role that the engineer has to play in these factors. A key message from Damian was around the importance of sharing knowledge with others around the health and management of streams, and being open to learning from others.
