Environmental & Earth Science Services

 High quality. Cost-effective. User-focused. 


We are very proud to announce the publication of the article titled "Physiographic Environment Classification: a Controlling Factor Classification of Landscape Susceptibility to Waterborne Contaminant Loss" into the Environmental Management journal.

You will often hear us talking about the significant influence that landscape settings have on water quality outcomes. This paper reveals that on average the landscape has 2x the influence on the spatial variability of the type and severity of water quality outcomes compared to land use across NZ!

This article is the culmination of an immense amount of research and work - congratulations to Clint and Lisa from the Land & Water Science team for their efforts!

Developing Innovative Strategies

Land and Water Science is an innovative, research-based, environmental consultancy located in Invercargill, New Zealand.


Collectively we hold extensive experience in environmental science and resource management gained through research and consulting for and within regional councils, crown research institutes and universities.


Our primary aim is to provide high quality, cost-effective, user-focused scientific services in a range of environmental and earth science fields.


Our areas of expertise include:

  • Hydrological process and soil characterisation

  • Hydrochemical analyses

  • Greenhouse gas emission measurements and estimates

  • Continuous monitoring of contaminated sites

  • Radiometric surveying and analysis

  • LandscapeDNA


Many of our projects have involved the use of high resolution spatial and temporal data which has helped us provide an integrated view of environmental processes that range from regional to paddock scale.
