THE MURRAY-DARLING RIVER BASIN OF AUSTRALIA - PART 1 NATURAL WATER FLOWS

THE MURRAY-DARLING RIVER BASIN OF AUSTRALIA - PART 1 NATURAL WATER FLOWS

This is the first of a three part series on the Murray-Darling Basin of Australia. Part 1 has a focus on the physical geography of water resources, catchment areas and flows via a map and details. It also includes human elements - like the Exploration of Charles Sturt down the River Murray and the World Heritage site indicating a long human presence within the Basin. Each section has the inclusion of questions and worksheets supported by attachment pages in black and white or colour for your choice. This Basin is an important part of Aboriginal presence in the area which pre-dates the European presence. In a dry continent the resource of water is of critical significance. This opening unit will lead on to the second title - the modification of water within the Basin and then on to the third title which considers the Murray-Darling Basin Plan and the controversies over water management and distribution - issues raised during 2017.
