Mud Rising in Moreton Bay

The University of Queensland‘s Mud Rising in Moreton Bay study undertook the most comprehensive sediment survey across Moreton Bay to establish current sediment distribution within the Bay and Northern Banks.

The study assessed 223 sites across 2,000 km2 of waterways for sediment particle size distribution and mud content ranging from the top of the Pumicestone Passage down to the mouth of the Nerang River.

Results from the study will allow researchers and catchment managers to better understand current monitoring data and inform future remedial management actions”.
