This dataset contains Landsat 5 imagery for selected areas of Queensland, currently Torres Strait and around Lizard Island and Cape Tribulation.

This collection was made as a result of the development of the Torres Strait Features dataset. It includes a number (typically 4 - 8) of selected Landsat images for each scene from the entire Landsat 5 archive. These images were selected for having low cloud cover and clear water. The aim of this collection was to allow investigation of the marine features.

PreviewA three-dimensional whole-of-GBR baroclinic hydrodynamic model was applied at a spatial resolution of between 1 and 4 km. The model simulations are compiled to examine the intensity, duration and frequency of different lower salinity events.

The exposure of Great Barrier Reef coral reef and seagrass ecosystems to contaminants is estimated from the synthesis of: river discharge, water quality data sampled in inshore sites during flood conditions and the use of remote sensing technology to estimate flood plume extents and duration.
