RP178A & RP178B 2017/18 transitional work program for Bioavailable Nutrients (BAN)
RP178A: 2017/18 work program will look to progress scientific knowledge and management response of Bioavailability of Nutrients in Great Barrier Reef (GBR) systems to enhance delivery of Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan. It will also provide bioavailable nutrient budgets and interpretation to complement the existing sediment budgets being generated in existing gully rehabilitation projects. A focus will be on: understanding particle size of sediment and potential risk analysis of contributions to nutrients loads in GBR, method to support accounting of benefits of on-ground sediment projects, and supporting the scoping of longer term research agendas.
• By June 2018, provide a report on the range and dominant particle size of sediment across GBR catchments to inform Source Catchment models and eReefs models; advice on future monitoring and evaluation of particle size analysis; and advice on the algorithm and pedotransfer requirements for input into nutrient generation components of P2R models
• Provide June 2018, Develop method for accounting for the improvements made in water quality for the investments made in erosion control and supporting case-study
• By April 2018, contribute to the development of a concept paper scoping the long term research needs and response to inform the Reef Plan RDI Strategy.
(to be confirmed under Stage 1)
RP178B: Facilitation of and associated preparation and write-up of the workshop on the bioavailability of particulate nutrients from land-based sediment run-off to the marine ecosystem, providing a way forward with a course of action.
A workshop including representatives in research, policy, P2R modelling and extension in Queensland government and Australian government and others.
A concept paper from the results of the workshop designed to determine the way forward with an appropriate course of action and inform Queensland and Australia Government investment.
