Brief description

This dataset contains data from pollution monitoring in Jervis Bay, NSW. The data were obtained from various sites around Jervis Bay at different times between October 1988 and July 1991. Samples for trace metals from sediments were determined, together with grain size. Mercury in the tissues of Red morwong (Cheilodactylus fuscus), Oysters (Ostrea angasi), Mussels (Trichomya hirsuta) and heavy metals in the leaves of Posidonia australis and Zostera sp. were determined. Organochlorides and hydrocarbons from sediments, water column and biota were also determined. Tributyl tin experiments were conducted in tanks. The data are part of the Jervis Bay Marine Ecological Study. NB - As the database has been lost, the only data still available are those published in the JERVIS BAY BASELINE STUDIES Final Report.
