Results from the culmination of five-years of groundbreaking research to understand how dredging and sediments affects corals have been released in a new paper published in Scientific Reports.
New guidelines for dredge plume modelling are being developed by CSIRO in partnership with the Western Australian Marine Science Institution.
A report released on one of the largest single-issue environmental research programs in Australia that gained unprecedented access to industry dredging data, has been recognised by industry and government as a ground-breaking step forward for environmental regulation.
The “Perspectives on Dredging” AMSA symposium has brought together is open to scientists, regulators, managers, industry and consultants with practical experience of dredging practices in the marine environment.
The Western Australian Marine Science Institution’s Dredging Science Node has been shortlisted for WA's Environmental Excellence awards.
The enigmatic body shape of a tropical whip sponge collected in Western Australia has resulted in the creation of a new family and genus of sponges.
Coral fertilisation is most sensitive to sticky inshore sediments according to researchers working to define the effects of dredging-related pressures and natural high turbidity events.
A global study has assessed the potential risk from dredging to coastal fish and fisheries and identified guidelines that could protect 95 per cent of fishes from dredging‐induced mortality.
A new study has developed a model that moves researchers a step closer to improved predictions of changes in shorelines adjacent to coral reefs and the transport of suspended sediments in reef systems.
Data from the Western Australian Marine Science Institution’s projects (2012-2018) now discoverable and available for reuse.
