This paper presents a scientific and technical description of the modelling framework and the main results of modelling the long-term average sediment delivery at hillslope to medium-scale catchments over the entire Murray Darling Basin (MDB). A theoretical development that relates long-term averaged sediment delivery to the statistics of rainfall and(More)
Sediment delivery ratio (SDR) is traditionally defined as the fraction of upland gross erosion that is transported out of a defined area, e.g., a plot or catchment. It is, effectively, an index of sediment transport efficiency. Previously, it is treated as an empirically-lumped parameter used as a mechanism for compensating for sediment deposition within a(More)
The relationship between the host and its microbiota is challenging to understand because both microbial communities and their environments are highly variable. We have developed a set of techniques based on population dynamics and information theory to address this challenge. These methods identify additional bacterial taxa associated with pediatric Crohn(More)
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disease of the intestine which can lead to malnutrition, poor quality of life, and colon cancer.(1-4) Although there is no cure for the disease, clinical remission is the primary goal.(5) The Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) adopted a(More)
Based on a spatially-distributed sediment budget across the Murray Darling Basin, costs of achieving a range of sediment reduction targets were estimated for a number of locations. Four investment prioritization scenarios were tested to identify the most cost-effective strategy to control suspended sediment loads. The impacts of spatial heterogeneity of(More)
