Project Details

Project Description

Eddy correlation is a new technique for quantifying benthic oxygen fluxes and potentially other benthic fluxes
(e.g. Ca+). The proposed Eddy Correlation Lander Array will be the first in world. This cutting-edge
equipment will put Australian scientists at the forefront of this exciting new research direction, allowing us to
make ground-breaking advances that will revolutionise our understanding of how aquatic systems function.
As such, this system will significantly enhance many core-research programs in a variety of environmental
fields such as coastal biogeochemistry, coastal hydrology, climate change, acid sulfate soils, coral reefs, and
freshwater biogeochemistry and ecology at Southern Cross University and Monash University.
