This module provides a brief introduction to the tropical rivers of north Australia. It demonstrates the seasonal flow characteristics of tropical rivers and how the different parts of the system play important roles in sustaining the environment, particularly in the dry season. This information is used to demonstrate the concept of environmental flow and its importance in sustaining biodiversity and landscape health. This module provides a foundation for recognising the need of water plans to allocate and maintain the availability of water in the environment.
