Full description

The dataset consists of environmental data gathered since 1996 from sixteen wetlands on the Gnangara Mound north of Perth, Western Australia and it provides a reliable and reasonably long term record of the conditions of wetlands over time, as a benchmark for future conditions and a reliable indicator of wetland condition. It also provides detailed knowledge of the way data have been gathered in the past so as to keep monitoring consistent and contribute to the understanding of wetland ecosystem function on the Swan Coastal Plain.
The wetlands of the Gnangara Mound that are being monitored as part of the program are: Lake Gnangara, Lake Goollelal, Lake Jandabup, Lake Joondalup North, Lake Joondalup South, Lake Marginiup, Loch McNess North, Loch Mcness South, Melaleuca Park, Lake Nowergup, Pipindinny Swamp, Lake Yonderup, Lake Bambun, Lake Muckenburra, Quins Brook, Yeal Lake. Wetland monitoring falls into four categories: sentinel wetlands, triennial wetlands, episodic wetlands and SGS (Shallow Groundwater Systems) wetlands.
The dataset consists of environmental data: water quality measurements and photos held in Excel and Primer files. Data is categorised by wetland, by water quality parameters, and by different invertebrates. The research program produces an annual report presenting a summary of the water chemistry and findings of macro-invertebrate monitoring work carried out for the year. The report is accompanied by two databases on CD.

Notes

Access to the dataset is subject to Western Australian Department of Water approval. Contact Dr Pierre Horwitz to determine access conditions.

There is an agreement between the Western Australian Department of Water and Edith Cowan University concerning the rights to this collection.

Data gathering has been undertaken by Dr Pierre Horwitz and researchers at Edith Cowan University.
