Earl Bardsley

Associate Professor
The University of Waikato

Earl is the originator of the idea of using Lake Onslow for significant energy storage via pumped storage. He has supervised a Masters and a PhD thesis simulating Onslow operations. His research interests are:

  • Interaction of pumped storage and river hydrology (Onslow and Ngaruroro schemes)
  • Data-based hydroclimatic forecasting
  • Developing stochastic and deterministic hydrological models of maximum simplicity
