Relating sediment impacts on coral reefs to watershed sources, processes and management: a review
Bartley et al review and synthesise research on measured runoff, sediment erosion and sediment delivery from watersheds to near-shore marine areas, with a strong focus on the Burdekin watershed in the Great Barrier Reef region, Australia. The results of this review will be relevant to all watersheds upstream of coral reefs, and of particular interest to dry-tropical watersheds that have undergone land degradation due to cattle grazing.
