Recent datasets

Published on 9 November 2022

This dataset consists of the historical range limits and poleward-most extent of recent extralimital occurrence of 82 potential marine species’ range extensions around Australia (NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC and WA) revealed by an assessment of citizen scientists observations from Redmap, Reef Life Survey, and iNaturalist from 2013–2022.

This dataset consists of seagrass shoot height and biomass assessments from an experiment which compared control plots to exclusion cage plots which prevented megaherbivore grazing. This experiment ran at two sites from September 2021 to April 2022.

This dataset contains Sentinel 2 and Landsat 8 cloud free composite satellite images of the Coral Sea reef areas and some parts of the Great Barrier Reef. It also contains raw depth contours derived from the satellite imagery. This dataset was developed as the base information for mapping the boundaries of reefs and coral cays in the Coral Sea. It is likely that the satellite imagery is useful for numerous other applications. The full source code is available and can be used to apply these techniques to other locations.

These maps are large (A0) printable maps of the Torres Strait broken into six overlapping regions.
These maps show satellite imagery of the region, overlaid with reef and island boundaries and
names. Not all features are named, just the more prominent features. This also includes a vector map of Ashmore Reef and Boot Reef in Coral Sea as these were used in the same discussions that these maps were developed for. The map of Ashmore Reef includes the atoll platform, reef boundaries and depth polygons for 5 m and 10 m.

This vulnerability map results from integrating the spatial pattern of the following stressors: cyclonic waves, currents, cyclone tracks, heatwaves (DHW), crown of thorns starfish, and tsunamis. After summarizing historical data and reclassifying each variable into a common scale, they were integrated into a single vulnerability score whose spatial distribution is represented in this map.

This dataset summarises 40 years of seagrass data collection (1983-2022) within Torres Strait and the Gulf of Carpentaria into two GIS shapefiles: (1) a point shapefile that includes survey data for 48,612 geolocated sites, and (2) a polygon geopackage describing seagrass at 641 individual or composite meadows.

This dataset consists of one data file (CSV) from a nationally open survey for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples involved or interested in ecosystem restoration of marine and coastal habitats. The survey elicited 8 responses, although not all were complete, and gathered perceptions of engagement in restoration by researchers and practitioners.

This record provides an overview of the NESP Marine and Coastal Hub small-scale study - Barriers to using UAVs in conservation and environmental management.

Environmental managers are embracing technology to assist with monitoring and evaluating coastal wetlands. Drones are being used routinely for fauna tracking and water sample collection; however, barriers in broader application still remain for adoption in environmental management. This research will survey conservation professionals about the barriers preventing drone adoption.
