The Centre for Aquatic Pollution Identification and Management (CAPIM) is an interdisciplinary research organisation fully owned by the University of Melbourne.
The Centre is dedicated to: the identification of freshwater, estuarine and marine water pollution; the assessment of its ecological impacts; the sourcing of pollutants of concern; and the development of cost-effective monitoring systems. It is the only integrated water pollution, identification and monitoring centre in Australia.
CAPIM’s interdisciplinary team of researchers bring together their knowledge and expertise to:
- Analyse and identify pollutants
- Isolate pollution sources
- Assess the impact of aquatic pollution on ecosystems
- Inform waterway management policies and practices
- Develop cost- effective monitoring systems.
Based on a weight-of-evidence approach, CAPIM’s research informs water management policies and practices to achieve improved waterway health, greater biodiversity, and environmental and industrial sustainability.
