Namoi ecological Hydrological Response Variables (HRVs)

Abstract

The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple datasets. The source dataset is identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

Ecologic Hydrologic Response Variables (HRVs) are the hydrological characteristics of the system that are instrumental in maintaining and shaping ecological services and can potentially change due to coal resource development. These data refer to the ecologic HRVs for the Namoi subregion for the 54 simulation nodes. The nine ecologic HRVs were computed under CRDP and Baseline conditions, respectively and the ACRD is the difference between the Baseline and CRDP.

The nine ecologic HRVs are as follows:

  1. FR1 = R0.3 This is the volume of flow that is assumed to result in the over-bench flow. It is defined as the peak daily flow in flood events with a return period of 3 times per year as defined from the modelled flow in the reference period (1983-2012). This HRV contributes to the variable SFLR.

  2. FR2 = (R3.0) This is a volume of flow that is assume to result in "over-bank" flow. It is defined as the peak daily flow in flood events with a return period of once every three years as defined from modelled flow in the reference period (1983-2012). This HRV contributes to the variable SFLR.

  3. FR3_NumberofDays (Low flow, days) The mean number of days per year with "low" streamflow during a thirty year period. The low streamflow is defined as any modelled streamflow below 1 ML/d. It is assumed to represent minimum flow that is sufficient to flow of riffle and gravel bar structures and thereby maintain connectivity between pool habitats within streams.

  4. FR3_Max_Spell Maximum spell of low flow days.

  5. FR3_Mean_Spell Mean spell of low flow days.

  6. VOBF (Volume of overbank flow) = Cumulative daily streamflow in excess of the overbank threshold over the duration of an event. Overbank flow is defined as a daily streamflow with an event return period of 1 in 3 during the historical simulation period.

  7. ZF_NumberofDays= The mean number of days per year with "zero" streamflow during a thirty year period. The zero streamflow is defined as any modelled streamflow below 0.1 ML/d.

  8. ZF_Max_Spell Maximum spell of zero flow days.

  9. ZF_Mean_Spell Mean spell of zero flow days.

Purpose

This is the dataset used for the receptor impact modelling to evaluate additional coal mine and coal resource development impacts on receptors at 54 simulation nodes.
