Water quality research: baseline synthesis and year 1 summary

In the period since the release of the Reef Water Quality Protection Plan in 2003 research has been published this both changes and advances our understanding of water quality issues for the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). This report summarises the research and identifies key water quality issues that need to be addressed in the future. The Marine and Tropical Sciences Research Facility (MTSRF) will play a pivotal role in investigating these priority research needs.
