Marc Parlange is recognised internationally for his expertise in environmental fluid mechanics. Professor Marc Parlange is the Provost and Senior Vice-President of Monash University. His contributions in this broad area primarily relate to the measurement and simulation of air and water flows over complex terrain, with a focus on how air turbulence and atmospheric dynamics (atmospheric boundary layer flow) influence urban, agricultural and alpine environments. Parlange is active in addressing water resources challenges and environmental change in remote communities, particularly West Africa, through his research on hydrology and climate change.
