Sediment and nutrients released by erosion processes are transported in river flow and ultimately delivered to river mouths. Such processes are involved in damaging coral platforms along the Queensland coast, on which data is being collected. An objective of this scholarship could be to both participate in the analysis of such data collection, but also contribute to the development of models designed to better understand the processes affecting such delivery, distribution and consequences of river-borne sediment and associated nutrients.
