My research combines field, laboratory, and modelling approaches to quantify the key components of a carbonate sediment budget, using Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia as a case study. This budget analysis will give insight into the future changes in carbonate sediment production and cycling at Ningaloo and other fringing reef systems due to ocean acidification, sea-level rise, storm frequency and other issues related to climate change. This research will provide critical new insights into carbonate sediment production and cycling in fringing reef environments. Information gained from this study will help to refine our understanding of sediment transport pathways and coastal landform development in these environments. Furthermore, quantification of the key components of a carbonate sediment budget will prove crucial to predicting and understanding future changes to fringing reef systems due to climate change and ocean acidification.
