Environmental Water Requirements to Maintain Estuarine Processes

+ SIGNETS

LIEN: http://www.environment.gov.au/water/publications/environmental/rivers/nrhp/estuarine.html

Description

The purpose of this report is to present and explain a method of determining appropriate levels of environmental flows to Australian estuaries. Although the geographic extent of an estuary within a catchment or river basin may be very limited:

  • estuaries are primary catchment drainage sites to the coastal ocean; and,
  • the physical, chemical, sediment, water quality and ecological processes within estuaries are exceedingly complex primarily due to their dynamic nature, complex mixing processes, stochastic influences, strong antecedent effects and the vast number of complex ecological linkages.
