Northey island Managed Retreat. Report 6. Results to Feb 96 (ENRR185)

Monitoring of geomorphological development of the managed retreat scheme on Northey Island was done on a twice-yearly basis. The methodology adopted at the commencement of the project has been continued in order to provide a time series of data and enable all the results to be assessed on the same basis. The data being collected includes: topographic survey; accretion measurements along a transect extending from the back of the site through the spillway and across the mudflat to low water; accretion measurements distributed spatially; analysis of sediment grain size characteristics; general photographic record of site development, including vegetation colonisation, creek development and condition of the new walls. This report was the last in the twice-yearly monitoring series.
