Sediment dynamics in Western Port Bay

This data was collected as part of two research projects commissioned by Melbourne Water that investigated components of sediment dynamics in Western Port and its contributing rivers in Victoria, including: - River TSS, TN, TP loads in Cardinia Ck, Bunyip R, Lang Lang R, Bass R (2015 back to beginning of records) - Coastal bank erosion rates at La... more

About this Project

Western Port Bay Melb Water

The project aims to advance understanding of the influence of fine sediment on seagrass extent and condition, and also the feedback mechanisms of seagrass on sediment transport. This information will assist natural resources managers to assess possible future conditions and identify actions within the catchment and along the coastline that are most... more
