Sediment dynamics of a temperate water carbonate system of the midwestern Australian coast
MetadataShow full item record
An integrated analysis of sediment, hydrodynamic, habitat and geophysical data was carried out to reconstruct the sediment budget of two shallow (< 30 m) coastal embayments characterised by temperate water carbonate sedimentation. The interaction between coastal geomorphology, infrastructure and sediment transport pathways influences beach erosion. The linkage between natural processes and ongoing sediment bypassing and maintenance dredging activities was explained. This information is beneficial to support management of similar locations of regional Western Australia.

A Field-Based Technique for Measuring Sediment Flux on Coral Reefs: Application to Turbid Reefs on the Great Barrier ReefBrowne, Nicola; Smithers, S.; Perry, C.; Ridd, P. (2012)Inshore turbid reefs on the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) are exposed to high and fluctuating sediment loads normally associated with poor reef growth, but many have high coral cover (>30%) and diversity (>50 species).

The significant role of sediment bio-retexturing within a contemporary carbonate platform system: Implications for carbonate microfacies developmentO'Leary, Mick; Perry, C.; Beavington-Penney, S.; Turner, J. (2009)Assessments of carbonate platform reef–lagoon sediments and benthic habitats around Rodrigues Island (south-west Indian Ocean) have been undertaken in order to examine carbonate sediment texturalproperties and the controls ...
Sources of glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers (GDGTs) in catchment soils, water column and sediments of Lake Rotsee (Switzerland) – Implications for the application of GDGT-based proxies for lakesNaeher, Sebastian; Peterse, F.; Smittenberg, R.; Niemann, H.; Zigah, P.; Schubert, C. (2014)We analysed glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraether (GDGT) distributions in the water column, sediment and catchment soils of the Swiss Lake Rotsee to determine the sources of GDGTs in the lake sediment and to determine the ...
