Description / Abstract: Samples of seafloor sediments were taken from Darwin Harbour during July 1993. A total of 114 sites were sampled for heavy metals and arsenic concentrations, and grainsize. Sampling was undertaken by the then Northern Territory University, now Charles Darwin University, for the NT Government. This work contributed to baseline data prior to infrastructure development and dredging of the East Arm Port facility, with sampling effort concentrated in this area.
