IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

A real-time management system for the perth coastal margin, western australia
The Centre for Water Research at The University of Western Australia has developed a software suite, the Aquatic Realtime
Management System and the Real-time Management System Online (ARMS-RMSO, http://www.rmso.com.au/), as a
new tool for the sustainable management of rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastal seas. It combines the integration of a
number of technologies and approaches to enable the extraction of new levels of knowledge using arrays of sensors
encompassing physical, chemical and biological measurements, providing data in real-time, models results and
continuous information display to be used for scientific research, education, management and environmental policy-related
applications. This paper provides an overview of the structure and components of the system and its implementation and
approach taken for the Perth Coastal Margin, Western Australia (Australia), focusing on an integrated meteorological,
surface waves, hydrodynamic and ecological model set. The system automatically generates short-term meteorological
conditions, surface wave field, hydrodynamic circulation and physical and biogeochemical properties in real-time available
via the World Wide Web (RMSO) for the purpose of monitoring the ecological health of the ecosystem and guiding
recreational, management and research activities.
