Australian IMCRA Mesoscale Bioregions: Derivation methodology for physical and chemical stressor guideline values

​Publication details

The derivation methodology for Australia’s IMCRA mesoscale bioregion water quality default guideline values (DGVs). The methodology explains how we selected physical and chemical (PC) stressor DGVs for each of Australia’s mesoscale bioregions using a range of available datasets. Sea surface temperature, chlorophyll a and turbidity DGVs from satellite datasets. Oxygen, nitrate, silicate and salinity DGVs from CSIRO Atlas of Regional Seas.

This report should be available in 2020.
