Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

    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.

  2. Type: note

    There are 3 datasets (xls, ods and pdf formats) including 1. A report. 2. Analysis for N and P. 3. %DIN and %DIP.
