Every five years the Australian Government conducts a comprehensive review of the state of the Australian environment. National
State of the Environment (SoE) reports provide information about environmental and heritage conditions, trends and pressures
for the Australian continent, surrounding seas and Australia's external territories. SoE 2016 builds upon the 2011 approach
by showing changes over time across the key areas of the environment, including atmosphere, inland waters, land, marine environment,
Antarctic environment, biodiversity, heritage, built environment and coasts.
This parent metadata record links to all Expert Assessments and associated Data Streams (where available) that have contribute
to the Marine chapter of the 2016 State of the Environment report.
