This project aimed to understand how dissolved and particulate material from freshwater systems in the Kimberley are transported
by the tides and currents into the coastal marine environment and whether these exports from land play a role in coastal
productivity. The project linked closely with WAMSI 2 KMRP projects 2.2.1 and 2.2.2 to better understand how freshwater discharge
influences marine food web structure and sustains the productivity of Kimberley inshore ecosystems. Oceanographic and biogeochemical
data was collected over two field campaigns (October/November 2013 and April/May 2014) from the Walcott Inlet, Collier Bay
area (16° 22.624’S 124° 26.235’E to 16° 24.487’S 124° 54.035’E) and models integrated with those for Collier Bay (KMRP Project
