dc.description.abstractThe bulk carrier ‘Shen Neng 1’ ran aground on Douglas Shoal in April 2010 and remained on the reef for 10-days before being re-floated. The total area directly impacted was approximately 42 ha which makes this incident the largest ship grounding scar known in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, and possibly the largest reef-related direct shipping impact in the world. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) established the Douglas Shoal Remediation Project (the Project) in late 2016 with funds from a court settlement associated with the grounding incident.The Project has as its primary desired outcome that remediation activities support natural recovery at Douglas Shoal. This Field Report is concerned with describing the sediment sampling fieldwork.en
