        For example, the Kowai River, a tributary of the Waimakariri River, had significantly higher TR in than the Waimakariri River, suggesting a mean catchment residence time of order 10 years. Fortunately the interpretation of the tritium data in the groundwaters does not have to rely on the detailed behaviour of the individual rivers or the. The Waimakariri River is known for its unpredictability; flood and drought events can occur at any time of the year. Knowledge about the return period of extreme events is crucial for water managemen t and planning. Frequency analysis uses the stochastic nature of these extreme events as a basic concept to account for uncertainty by describing the expected occurrence of floods and droughts.

Author(s) B. Jenkins. Abstract. The paper uses the approach of “nested adaptive systems” to establish an operational definition of sustainable management of three significant issues in the Waimakariri catchment of the South Island of New Zealand: availability of water for irrigation, public water supply for Christchurch urban area, and gravel extraction from the bed of the Waimakariri River.
