Associate Prof Jacky Croke is a fluvial geomorphologist based at the University of Queensland in Australia. She has worked extensively on river systems both within Australia and overseas at a range of spatial and temporal scales. Jacky’s primary research focus is on river system response to both changing climate and human impacts over a range of timescales. This involves a focus on geomorphic response of rivers and catchments to major land use disturbances such as floods, droughts, vegetation clearing and extreme events. She is also interested in developing better understanding of sediment delivery processes in Australia’s large basins of the Great Barrier Reef using an array of techniques including geochronology (optically stimulated luminescence OSL; radiocarbon); geomorphic change detection using LiDAR; cosmogenic nuclides and sediment delivery modelling. Jacky has held several large ARC projects and is currently lead Chief Investigator on a large, multi-partner ARC Linkage project ‘The Big Flood: Will it happen again?’ investigating the recurrence of extreme flood events in SEQ. Jacky has a strong interest to translate scientific findings into policy and planning guidelines.
