  • Overview

    FLOODS OF LAKE EYRE is an illuminating study of an outstanding natural phenomenon.


    In a well-researched and informative text, author Vincent Kotwicki describes the origin, occurrence and behaviour of water in Lake Eyre and its environment, and gives a first estimate of inflows to the lake in the period 1885-1984.


    His words are complemented by aerial and satellite photographs, informative maps and graphs, and above all by a selection of magnificent colour photographs taken by well-known outback photographer Bob Mossel, who has captured on film various facets of this area since 1957.

    Floods of Lake Eyre is the most comprehensive study of the hydrology of Lake Eyre yet written; and it is also a work to kindle the imagination and to raise awareness. Finally, it poses the challenging question: what does the future hold for this extraordinary natural feature of Australia?
