      Before the Southland Regional Council (Environment Southland) Hearing Commissioners Under the Resource Management Act (RMA) worked in New Zealand, Finland, Denmark, Australia and Antarctica. My research Mararoa River and at some sites in the Lower Waiau River. Frederick Tuckett scanned the Southland coast in , seeking land for a Free Church of Scotland settlement. However, he decided on Otago Harbour, further north. In Captain John Stokes of HMS Acheron, during its marathon charting of the New Zealand coast, climbed Bluff Hill and was excited by the view of ‘an extensive plain in form not.

      The Mavora Lakes, located in the upper catchment of the Mararoa River, are one of the conservation treasures of Southland in the southern South Island of New Zealand. These wetlands are located on the terminal moraine below the South Mavora Lake, and were photographed two days after a winter storm had delivered snow falls to low levels.

      The Land Use in Rural New Zealand (LURNZ) model is a simulation model that predicts overall shifts in land use at a national scale and then allocates those changes spatially. Figure 1 shows how we expect land use and land quality to interact when farmers apply their land to the use . New Zealand has international emissions-reduction targets to meet (or pay for not meeting them), and this will have a bearing on land-use choices and farming systems. Mike Hedley, professor of soil science at Massey University’s Institute of Agriculture and Environment, says two-thirds of the country’s ruminant emissions come from dairy.

Get this from a library. Land use capability of the Mararoa River catchment, Southland, New Zealand. [G A Dunbar; R C Prickett; G Howard; New Zealand. NZLRI Land Use Capability The New Zealand Land Resource Inventory (NZLRI) is a national database of physical land resource information.

It comprises two sets of data compiled using stereo aerial photography, published and unpublished reference material, and extensive field work.

The Lake Rotorua Catchment Map provides a broad overview of how the climate affects the catchment and a useful way tool to see how your property is affected by rain, soil and slope of the land. Useful tips: Click on the double arrows icon top left to access the map layers. Turn each map layer on.

The following drawings show typical low, medium and high catchment river profiles as well as examples of actual river berm widths in Southland.

Inventory, land-use capability and extended legend information can be used in planning at national, regional, district, and catchment levels.

On a national level, for example, Electricorp via a consortium of consultants, used the NZLRI to plan a corridor for routeing new transmission lines.

The results of these investigations being the most likely to improve catchment models and a conceptual understanding of land use losses and pathways of losses. This was developed under the premise that any attempt at catchment scale modelling needs to start with as accurate land use and land use loss information as possible.

The main purpose of the boards was to minimise and prevent damage by floods and erosion.

Dominant land uses in New Zealand include conservation (eg national and forestry parks), forestry (eg for timber resources/wood supply), urban (eg built up areas and open parkland), and agriculture and horticulture.

Each land use places different pressures on the land and on receiving environments such as waterways. 5 Moran, W. ‘Land use, distance and rural land use change’, New Zealand Geographer, 34, 2, 6 Le Heron, R B and Roche, M M () "Expanding Exotic Forestry and the expansion of a competing use for rural land in New Zealand", Journal of Rural Studies, 1, 3, 7 Land and Water Forum.
