The Environmental Research Institute of the Supervising Scientist (eriss) at Jabiru initiated a program to assess and monitor coastal change in the Alligator Rivers Region of the Northern Territory. It commenced in October 1996 with funding support for 12 months from the Portfolio Marine Group of Environment Australia. The Environmental Research Institute of the Supervising Scientist extended support for the program until February 1998. The program is currently maintained as part of the core wetland research activities of the Institute.
This report presents an overview of progress in the monitoring program from October 1996 to February 1998. Papers presented in the report detail initiation of the monitoring program and establishment of the framework supporting information acquisition and management. They outline progress with projects commenced under the program, audit existing information and describe areas requiring further investigation.
