About the report

This report contains the data for cross sections, scour chains and particle size distributions for the Ngarradj catchment for 2004.

The first field inspections were conducted in the Ngarradj catchment during the dry season of 1998 as initial work on the Jabiluka project had commenced. Erskine et al (2001) proposed that a sediment budget framework should be adopted by eriss to assess the physical impacts, if any, of the Jabiluka project on the Ngarradj catchment. During these field trips, various fluvial erosion processes were identified (Erskine et al 2001). Bank erosion and scour and fill of the sandy creek beds were observed as active processes.
