This Land Our Water - a collection of papers from the late Professor Peter Cullen AO
Professor Cullen was an influential communicator in many debates on the sustainable use of water in Australia.
In 2001 Professor Cullen was honoured with the Prime Minister's Environmentalist of the Year Award for his National Action Plan for Salinity and Water Quality. He was also a founding member of the Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists, formed in November 2002.
The 23 papers included in the book were originally written for journals, books and conferences. The collection resounds with the clarity of his purpose – to communicate scientific knowledge and influence the way Australians consider water use.
