Abstract

This project set out to collect economic data relevant to the GBRWHA and to explore the interaction between economic variables and biophysical variables thought to be related to reef resilience (e.g. indicators of water turbidity). Its overarching aim was to improve our understanding of the way in which the economy and the GBRWHA interact, making it easier to judge (a) which economic variables are most important to monitor, and (b) how to interpret trends in those variables (i.e. whether changes are likely to be ‘good’ or ‘bad’ for the reef).
