This project aims to understand how to design farms for a new mixed land use.

This study will provide design principles and practices that optimise farm and gas infrastructure and operations, minimising negative impacts and maximising benefits.

Identifying areas where coal seam gas development may assist agricultural intensification

This study aims to evaluate the inherent agricultural potential of the areas under CSG petroleum leases in the Surat Basin by identifying areas where aspects of CSG development may help facilitate farm intensification.

Monitoring impacts from broadscale resource development on surface water flows in agricultural landscapes

This paper uses Aerial digital photogrammetry to develop surface flow models derived from
fine scale digital elevation models (DEMs) are an appropriate tool for monitoring impact of the wider CSG
footprint on surface hydrology and in identifying potential problems during early negotiation and decision
planning of future infrastructure.
