PreviewThis dataset summarises the results of a survey of water quality and suspended solid metal data for ten (10) sites around Saibai and Boigu Islands in the Torres Strait during November 2018.
This project is providing a direct assessment of the ecological effects of multiple-use zoning on inshore reefs of the GBRMP. Underwater visual census (UVC) monitoring of fish and benthic communities is being carried out at 50 no-take marine reserve (green zone) sites and at 50 sites that have remained open to fishing within the Palm, Magnetic, Whitsunday and Keppel Island groups. Long-term monitoring surveys are providing information on: 1. The effects of no-take marine reserves on populations of both species that are fished and other non-fished species.
The low-lying islands of the Torres Strait are vulnerable to climate change and the region faces a range of pressures including a growing population, future climate change, potential pollution as a result of rapid mining and resources development in Papua New Guinea, and increased shipping. Through participatory scenario planning with Torres Strait and PNG communities and stakeholders, informed by integrated ecosystem and climate modelling this project will identify ‘best bet’ strategies to protect livelihoods and achieve sustainable economic development. Tasks include:
PreviewThis dataset shows larval connectivities between reefs that exceeded, and did not exceed, thermal thresholds for damage during the 2016/2017 Great Barrier Reef bleaching events.
PreviewThis dataset contains data on carbon chemistry on inshore reefs of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). Main parameters measured were temperature, total alkalinity and dissolved inorganic carbon.
PreviewThe purpose of this study was to characterise spatial and temporal patterns in sea surface temperatures in the Great Barrier Reef.
PreviewThis dataset shows the effects of of the insecticide imidacloprid and the fungicide propiconazole on larval development of the acorn barnacle Amphibalanus amphitrite experiments conducted in 2018 and 2019.
PreviewThis dataset shows the effects of herbicides (detected in the Great Barrier Reef catchments) on the growth rates (from stem length and biomass) on the stonewort Ceratophyllum demersum during laboratory experiments conducted in 2019.
PreviewThis dataset contains the voyage data from the crown-of-thorns starfish (COTS) control program operated by the Association of Marine Park Tourism Operators (AMPTO) from the Cairns to Lizard island region.
PreviewThis layer shows a 500m resolution image of the world derived from the Blue Marble Next Generation April 2004 image (86400x43200 pixels).
