Abstract

This report describes the investigations into the coastal creek system conducted within the Fitzroy agricultural contaminants project. Before this work started there had been only a limited data acquisition on the water quality parameters in several of the coastal creeks carried out by the Queensland Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These data are a valuable augmentation to the data collected under Coastal CRC auspices. We briefly outline the consolidated dataset, draw qualitative conclusions from it, and develop a conceptual model reflecting the interacting processes. These analyses are then the starting point for the development of a quantitative characterisation of the role of the coastal creeks in the biogeochemistry of Keppel Bay.
