Abstract: [Extract] The objectives of the marine physico-chemical environment expert group include: Review of existing indicators of water quality and an assessment of their adequacy and ability to clearly resolve anticipated changes in reef water quality; o provide sufficient context to aid in the interpretation of ecological responses associated with changes in water quality; Identify alternative indicators where review suggests existing indicators are inadequate; Review and evaluate existing water quality monitoring programs and other sources of water quality information (e.g. marine modelling, satellite remote sensing) and existing and emerging technologies, as candidates for inclusion in future Reef monitoring to inform identified selected priority indicators; A gap analysis of information requirements for physico-chemical parameters as part of various reporting obligations; Recommendations for an observational strategy and sampling approach for Marine physico-chemical variables to inform selected priority indicators under RIMReP. This will include defining data needs of marine modelling activities if those activities are to underpin parts of RIMReP; Recommendations for the development of data aggregation techniques and reporting products as informed by the RIMReP process and through existing complementary projects.
