PreviewAs part of the NERP TE project 2.3 temperature loggers were deployed at 15 sites across Torres Strait to measure the sea temperature. The loggers regularly measure the sea water temperature and record it in their memory.
PreviewThis dataset contains polygons depicting vegetation communities of the Wet Tropics Bioregion. Over 250 vegetation types are described using structural and floristic characteristics, and the vegetation communities have been classified using a logical, hierarchical framework.
PreviewData is from a series of instruments, including temperature loggers, weather stations and turbidity / salinity loggers deployed at four sites in the Torres Strait (Thursday Island – logger + weather station), Masig Island (logger + weather station), Bram
PreviewThis dataset summarises intertidal benthic surveys of Kai and Gariar Reefs (Orman Reefs, Torres Strait) in November 2018 into 3 GIS shapefiles.
PreviewThis dataset corresponds to the zoning within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park effective 1st July 2004. It is derived from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Zoning Plan 2003.
PreviewThis dataset contains telephone (n=1743), mail (n=800), and face-to-face (n=132) survey data collected from the recreational fishing community in the Great Barrier Reef region.
PreviewThis dataset contains the code for the Android application “COTS Control Centre Decision Support Tool” (CCC-DST).
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.
PreviewClimate change has emerged as the single greatest threat to coral reefs. The climate change threat will take many forms and includes projections that there will be higher abundances of coral diseases.
This project focuses on improving methods to detect the introduction of exotic animal diseases into the Torres Strait. The researchers will examine the environmental factors that influence the establishment and persistence of wildlife diseases in the region. They will study insect disease vectors and the incidence of disease in birds in a range of habitats in order to identify where disease risk is greatest. Field studies will be conducted using replicated mosquito trapping and mist netting of birds in Torres Strait, at sites identified from previous projects. Outcomes include:
