Waiology has been running for the better part of two years now, and has just completed a significant series on water governance.

And as Waiology moves ahead, it would be very helpful to know what you think about the blog.

  • Are you happy with the status quo? What’s good or not so good?
  • How useful and informative is Waiology?
  • What topics would you like covered in the future?
  • How can Waiology engage with you and others better?
  • What holds you back from commenting on articles?
  • Are you a subscriber? How do you hear about Waiology articles?
  • Are you a member of the public or the freshwater community? If freshwater, what do you do and where do you work?

Feel free to respond with this online survey, in the comments below, via the contact page, or directly to my NIWA email (firstname.lastname at

Your answers would be extremely helpful in planning Waiology’s next steps. Waiology is designed to be a service for the New Zealand public and freshwater community, and it helps to know what you want!

Your feedback is also very important to me personally. While Waiology does receive institutional support behind the scenes (thanks!), and many people have contributed their time in writing articles (thanks!), my time as editor and contributor is largely voluntary. So the tenor of your feedback will help me decide how much energy I will invest in Waiology from here on out.

Thanks for reading Waiology. I hope you have found it interesting, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Dr Daniel Collins is a hydrologist and water resources scientist at NIWA.

  • On Maori TV last evening there was a 1990 program about the north west wind. If it dried the barley straw too much then that had to be burnt so the new crop could grow. Can our water science encompass the climate change aspects of that approach compared to having grazing animals trample it?

  • I didn’t see the show, but it sounds more up the alley of the arable agriculture scientist, e.g., Plant and Food, AgResearch. [Daniel]
