Summary of Findings



This newsletter is the fifth in the series of community reports on Wilson Inlet produced by the Water and Rivers Commission. It summarises the results of the Water and Rivers Commission's estuarine data collection and monitoring program in Wilson Inlet from January 1995 to March 2002. The program has focused on quantifying nutrient enrichment and its consequences, and therefore the following water quality parameters have been investigated and are reported on here: salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, nutrients and phytoplankton algae.

The second Wilson Inlet Report to the Community described the data from 1995 to 1998 and also described many of the important elements and processes of the Wilson Inlet system. This report touches on those elements and processes again when describing the events of the past seven years in Wilson Inlet.
