AIMS river nutrient data collected from downstream sites in major Queensland rivers draining to the Great Barrier Reef lagoon, 1987-2000

The principal objective of the sampling program was to determine nutrient loads carried by the major rivers adjacent to the Central-Southern sections of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), for use in the compilation of a nutrient budget of the GBR shelf. Six major rivers were sampled extensively, the Barron, South Johnstone, Tully, Herbert, Burdekin and Fitzroy.
