Description / Abstract: In the context of increasing development and associated pressures, this project aims to inform the development of a first systematic, long-term, sediment monitoring program for Darwin Harbour which takes into consideration the physicochemical nature of Darwin Harbour sediment and the oceanographic processes which will influence the movement of contaminated sediment in the Harbour. The rationale for the program is that seabed and estuarine sediments are both an extensive habitat and the ultimate repository for many contaminants that enter waterways. In addition, monitoring of contaminants in sediment may facilitate the identification of increasing contaminant loads in the Harbour which may not be detected by water monitoring programs due to the high flushing rate within Darwin Harbour and infrequent water sample collection.
