  1. 1. Water Monitoring GBRI5 Runoff to Reef catchment scale monitoringAlan Hooper
  2. 2. Wet Tropics Coast•  Sample near end of system•  Barron River at Myola•  North Johnstone River at Tung Oil•  South Johnstone River at upstream Mill•  Tully River at Euramo•  Herbert River at Ingham sample by Terrain
  3. 3. •  Monitoring for runoff to reef is generally at long term Gauging Stations•  Some new gauging stations have been installed for this project•  Local site is on the Tully River upstream of the coastal agricultural area
  4. 4. •  Tully River at Tully Gorge Gauging Station in Queensland Parks and Wildlife Colours
  5. 5. •  Gauging Stations used as discharge data is available at these sites•  Gauging stations have telemetry•  Old – PSTN and Next G polled from Brisbane•  New – Next G and Satellite IP equipped sites FTP data whenever there is a change in near real time•  Only local site next G IP is on South Johnstone River
  6. 6. •  Equipment used is commercial off the shelf•  Statewide support by Hydrographic Support in Brisbane•  They provide the equipment and repair/ maintain/update equipment•  Also adapt equipment to specific needs•  All gauging stations to be updated to Campbell CR1000 with Next G or Satellite IP over the next five years
  7. 7. Recent Data North Johnstone River at Tung Oil
  8. 8. Recent data at Tully River at Euramo
  9. 9. Data Management•  Time series data stored on HYDSTRA – now owned by Kisters AG•  Results from Water Sample analysis currently stored on HYDSTRA as well as other departmental data bases•  Stores both unvalidated near real time telemetry data and validated data•  Stations polled by SODA - a Kisters product•  IP sites FTP to HYDSTRA and HYdsupp
  10. 10. Stage Discharge ratings developed using conventionalcurrent meters, Teledyne RDI Work Horse 600Khz ADCPS and Sontek M9 ADCP (pictured below)
