Biography

Dr Evan's expertise is in the area of land-atmosphere interactions, the water cycle and climate change.

His research involves general issues of water cycle processes over land, and how we can change them, largely through changes in land use and changes in climate. He focuses at the regional (or watershed) scale and studies processes including river flow, evaporation/transpiration, water vapour transport and precipitation. He uses various tools to examine the changes including regional climate and surface hydrological models, satellite remotely sensed and in-situ data and stable isotope analysis.

In 2008 he earned the Australian Agricultural Industries Young Innovators and Scientists Award by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry and Land & Water Australia.

Dr Evans is chair of the Murray-Darling Basin Regional Hydroclimate Project. This project is an element of the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project, which is a project of the Global Energy and Water cycle Experiment (GEWEX). GEWEX is run by the World Climate Research Programme.
