CMER researchers coring the South Australian Gulfs

Tuesday, 06 January 2015


CMER researchers Oscar Serrano, Paul Lavery and Miguel-Angel Mateo have undertaken a major field trip with South Australian collaborators to core seagrass meadows in the Gulf of St Vincent and Spencer Gulf. The project is a collaboration funded by the EPA of South Australia, SA Water and ECU, through the ECU-Industry grant scheme. During December, Paul, Oscar and Miguel worked with EPA and SA Water colleagues to take cores from meadows around Adelaide, Port Pirie and Whyalla. The cores will be used as environmental archives to reveal recent pollution history, particularly the amount and sources of lead pollution, as well as determining the carbon storage capacity of undisturbed and restored Posidonia meadows. For more details, contact Paul or Oscar.
