Data for:

Tibby, J., Haynes, D., Gibbs, M., Mosley, L., Bourman, R.P., and Fluin, J. (2022) The terminal lakes of the Murray River, Australia, were predominantly fresh before large-scale upstream water abstraction: Evidence from sedimentary diatoms and hydrodynamical modelling. Science of The Total Environment, 155225. 

Relative abundance diatom data for cores:

Lake Alexandrina - LA2 

Lake Albert - Ab1 

Lake Albert - Ab2 


Hydrodynamic model files  

  • CoreSites+SRLData_2007-2010_WoD.xlsx: Model salinity results (g/L)      for the lowest inflow period (2007-2010) at each of the core sites for sea      level conditions increased by 0 m (observed), +1 m and including the data      for the +2 m sensitivity test.
  • SalinityTimesSeriesData.csv: Daily time step modelled salinity      (g/L) output used to create Fig3c, including all scenarios that were not      plotted on Fig3c for clarity. Data for each core site, flow scenario      (minimum, 90th percentile and 50th percentile), sea      level rise (0 and +1 m increase over observed) and mouth bathymetry      (current and open) is included.
  • ESRI Shapefiles of average salinity over      the simulation period across the model domain for each scenario. The      shapefiles are polygons with salinity contours at 2 g/L increments, including      the average salinity within each polygon over the simulation period as an      attribute. Each scenario is a separate shape file in the zip file, with      scenarios representing the three flow scenarios (QWODMin=minimum flow      period 2007-2010, QWOD1900=90th percentile flow period      1897-1900 and QWOD1904=50th percentile flow period 1901-1904),      two sea level rise conditions (0 and +1 m increase over observed) and two      mouth bathymetry conditions (Current and Deep=Open).
