About the project

Description

The report is divided into three parts including:
(1) analysis of the Barrow Island coral health data set, providing qualitative and quantitative analysis of the various drivers of coral mortality (Supporting Publications and Reports –   1 & 2),
(2) the derivation of water quality management thresholds (Supporting Publications and Reports – 3) (Fisher et al. 2018) and;
(3) a more detailed discussion of some of the broader complexities of operationalising thresholds, providing context for some of the many assumptions underlying the threshold derivation in (Fisher et  al. 2018), the logic behind the theoretical approaches used.

Aims

To develop an outline of how thresholds should be used operationally during the Environment Impact Assessment phase and for active dredging management.
