Abstract

[Extract] There are 686 large (>1875m2) waterbodies throughout the Leichhardt catchment. Prioritizing on-ground management for these waterbodies requires a 'whole-of-catchment' assessment of how waterbodies throughout the catchment are behaving over time. This report describes how three different remote sensing products have been combined to describe waterbodies throughout the Leichhardt catchment. An archive of dry season Landsat TM data was used to describe the size, distribution and permanence of individual dry season waterbodies. The same archive was also analysed to characterise the optical water quality dynamics of each waterbody, i.e. which water bodies are always clear in the dry season, and which waterbodies vary between being clear during one dry season and then turbid the next. Daily MODIS data were also used to map the extent and duration of inundation associated with the post Tropical Cyclone Larry flood event.
