Northeast Australia has extensive and diverse seagrass meadows that have been, or have the potential to be affected by long-term and acute light reduction. Over the past century, sediment input into coastal waters has increased, resulting in long-term reduction in light penetration to the region’s seagrasses. As northeast Australia has a tropical monsoonal climate, coastal waters are also periodically inundated with large plumes of sediment laden freshwater, resulting in acute reduction of… CONTINUE READING
