Abstract

In May and June 2016, a longitudinal survey of almost the entire length of the Katherine and Daly Rivers was undertaken. The primary purpose of the survey was to map the thalweg of the river for hydrodynamic modelling and to collect mesohabitat data. This survey presented an opportunity to also obtain a comprehensive snapshot of the longitudinal variability of water quality, which is presented in this report.
