This paper describes the biophysical research component of a collaborative project, which is deveoping an applying an integrated approach to water resources assessment and management in the 40,000km2 Ping Basin in the Northern Highlands of Thailand. The project is a collaboration between the Royal Project Foundation of Thailand and the School of Resource Management and Environmental Science, The Australian National University, and is being partly funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research. The biophysical component simulates the effect of climate and land cover/use on erosion and off-site water quantity and quality.
