National Groundwater Monitoring Programme

The New Zealand National Groundwater Monitoring Programme (NGMP) provides a national perspective on groundwater quality through the establishment of ‘baseline’ groundwater quality; associates groundwater quality with certain causes, such as anthropogenic influence; and provides best-practice methods for sampling and monitoring, as well as groundwater quality data interpretation. The NGMP consists of three components: operations (collaboration with all New Zealand regional authorities), research and database.

Dodd-Walls Centre

The Dodd-Walls Centre is a national Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) involving six New Zealand universities, hosted by the University of Otago. The Dodd Walls Center has over 200 members, approximately half of whom are research students. Our research income includes base CoRE funding from the Tertiary Education Commission along with other funding from government and the private sector.
