Wolanski led the UNESCO-ROSTE estuarine ecohydrology modeling efforts to quantify the impact from farming, dams, irrigation, and urban ization on the ecological services that estuaries provide to humanity. The ecohydrol ogy models that have resulted have been applied to assess the human impact on coral cover in the Great Barrier Reef, Darwin Harbour, coastal waters of Micronesia, and Tanzania savannah ecosystems. Wolanski has more than 330 scientific papers and seven books. He is a fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, the Institution of Engineers Australia, and l' ' was awarded an Australian Centenary medal for services in estuarine and coastal oceanography, a Doctorate Honoris Causa from the Catholic University of Louvain, and a Queensland Information Technology and Marine Biology Section, centered on the ecology of (meio)benthos. In 1992 he created the department of Ecosystem Studies at the NIOO in Yerseke that focuses on processes at the interface between biogeochemistry and benthic biology. He has over 360 publications including 138 papers in peer-reviewed journals (Hirsch index 40, over 5000 citations) and edited six books. He was PI in many national and EUsponsored projects, a member of the editorial board of 12 scientific journals and a member of several peer review committees and scientific advisory boards. As
