Adapting the Hydrologic Evaluation of Landfill Performance (H. E. L. P) model to the climatic and soil characteristics of Queensland

Bauerle, Markus (2016) Adapting the Hydrologic Evaluation of Landfill Performance (H. E. L. P) model to the climatic and soil characteristics of Queensland. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis details the development a new version of the Hydrologic Evaluation of Landfill Performance (HELP) model, a tool used in assessing the potential of landfills to produce toxic leachate. The work has led to the development of a new software version of the HELP model, which includes Queensland specific weather and soil data and is more user friendly than the original version. The primary outcome of the research is the creation of a tool that can be used to meet the regulatory requirements for water balance modelling as part of the landfill design and evaluation process in Queensland.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
