PreviewThis dataset contains line and point features depicting contours across the Wet Tropics Bioregion as shown on the 1:50,000 scale National Topographic Maps. The dataset derives from Geoscience Australias 1:50,000 scale National Topographic Map Series data.
Pesticides, and particularly herbicides from agricultural sources, have been detected in nearshore sites of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) all year round. The actual impact from these concentrations of herbicides is under debate and information on cumulative impacts is required. To address this, a series of experiments will examine how plants and corals are affected by herbicides in the water in conjunction with other stressors such as temperature, low salinity and low light. An important source of herbicides in coastal waters is flood plumes from river runoff.
PreviewThis dataset is derived from the Australia's River Basins 1997 (GA) dataset. It shows the 12 drainage divisions. Primary credit should be given to Geoscience Australia.
PreviewThis dataset contains annual and seasonal values of the benthic light (bPAR index) for water quality on the Great Barrier Reef as calculated for each NRM Region (Cape York, Wet Tropics, Dry Tropics, Fitzroy and Mary-Burnett) and waterbody (Closed Coastal, Ope
PreviewThis dataset summarises the results of a survey to determine the concentration of trace metals from mine-derived pollution in marine waters and sediments across the Torres Strait during October 2016.
PreviewThis dataset is a composite of Landsat 5 satellite imagery to produce a cloud free, clear water seamless image of the Torres Strait region. This image includes some of Cape York and PNG, in particular the Fly river.
PreviewPattern of seagrass distribution in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area
PreviewThis dataset consists of one data file (spreadsheet) from a 28-d experiment examining sediment-induced changes in the spectral quality and quantity of light on three coral species (Acropora millepora, Pocillopora verrucosa and Montipora aequituberculata) and one encrusting
PreviewThe purpose of this study was to provide a large-scale documentation of the extent of bleaching, for comparison against SST and other bleaching events.
PreviewThis dataset provides information about the Australian community's awareness, concern and actions regarding climate change and the GBR.
