Heavy metals in the sediments of Northern Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia

Brady, James P. (2015) Heavy metals in the sediments of Northern Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This project was the first comprehensive assessment of heavy metals to be conducted in the sediments of Northern Moreton Bay since the 1970s and found that shipping and shipping related activities contributed significantly to the level of sediment contamination in the area. The study was also used to develop and test new methods of assessing heavy metal sediment quality.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
