Abstract

Australian ports serve diverse and extensive activities, such as shipping, tourism and fisheries, which may all impact the quality of port water. In this work water quality monitoring at different ports using a range of water quality evaluation indices was applied to assess the port water quality....

Abstract

Estuarine bank sediments have the potential to support the survival and growth of fecal indicator organisms, including Escherichia coli. However, survival of fecal pathogens in estuarine sediments is not well researched and therefore remains a significant knowledge gap regarding public health risks ...

Abstract

Concern for the maintenance of water quality of the lakes on K'gari-Fraser Island has attracted research attention but the impact of beach camping on beach freshwater has been poorly considered. The assumption has been that the natural assimilative capacity of the foredune ecosystem is sufficient...

Abstract

Numerical models are useful for predicting the transport and fate of contaminants in dynamic marine environments, and are increasingly a practical solution to environmental impact assessments. In this study, a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model and field data were used to validate a far-field...

Abstract

The World Health Organization recommends that the majority of water monitoring laboratories in the world test for E. coli daily since thermotolerant coliforms and E. coli are key indicators for risk assessment of recreational waters. Recently, we developed a new SNP method for typing E. coli...

Abstract

Water quality in recreational areas in Sydney Harbour, New South Wales, Australia, was analysed first to identify spatial patterns in faecal coliform and enterococci densities, and then to determine the relationship between bacterial densities and catchment rainfall. Non-metric multidimensional...

Abstract

With the development of coastal areas, microbial water quality is an emerging public health issue though few studies have focused on risks according to age. A survey was undertaken of faecal contamination in relation to recreational activities in the Peel Harvey estuarine system, Western Australia. ...

Abstract

Aims: To identify the most efficient techniques for the separation of microorganisms from coastal sediments and, using these techniques, to determine the concentration of faecal indicator organisms in recreational coastal water and sediment in South Australia. Methods and Results: Sediment samples...

Abstract

Mean concentrations of coliform bacteria in streambed sediments in a subtropical rain forest conservation reserve in Queensland, Australia, undisturbed except by tourists walking, camping and swimming, were approximately 0.5 × 106 cfu/100 ml during the dry season and 1.2 × 106 cfu/100 ml during the ...
