Description / Abstract: The study objectives are: 1.Undertake core sampling of Rapid Creek estuary to construct a pollutant history. Metal pollutant trends identified will enable reconstruction of pollution histories associated with land use change (development, urbanisation, and erosion); and 2.Provide valuable baseline data to progress the development of a sediment monitoring program in the Darwin Harbour region. This work will provide a precursor to future sediment monitoring across other parts of Darwin harbour with a focus on areas subject to increasing anthropogenic pressures.
