Mitigation of the effects associated with such changes is only possible if information on the spatial provenance and dominant types of erosion is known. To date, very few field-based studies have attempted to provide this information. A Monte Carlo style mixing model is used to predict the relative contribution of both the spatial geological sources and erosion types. The results indicate that sheetwash and rill erosion from cultivated basaltic land and channel erosion from non-basaltic parts of the catchment are currently contributing most sediment to the river system. Evidence indicates that the dominant form of channel erosion is gully headcut and sidewall erosion. Sheetwash and rill erosion from uncultivated land i. Analysis of the spatial provenance of floodplain core sediments, in conjunction with optical dating and Cs depth profile data, suggests that a phase of channel erosion was initiated in the late nineteenth century. With the development of land underlain by basalt in the mid-twentieth century the dominant source of erosion shifted to cultivated land, although improvements in land management practices have probably resulted in a decrease in sediment yield from cultivated areas in the later half of the twentieth century. On a basin-wide scale, because of the limited spatial extent of cultivation, channel sources are likely to be the largest contributor of sediment to the Fitzroy River.
What’s flowering in Central Queensland? One is a creeper called Petrea volubilis, or Purple Wreath and the other a tree called Schotia brachypetala or Parrot Tree. Probably one of the best floral displays you will find in Rockhampton at the moment can be seen in Brae Streets not far from the Botanic Gardens. This woody creeper does require a trellis or fence for support, and when flowering, the racemes of blue and violet flowers are truly spectacular.
After the Petrea flower fall the dusty blue calyx remains on the stalks for weeks later, giving another colourful display. When the Petrea is not in flower, the soft green foliage has an attractive appearance, and upon closer inspection, resembles sandpaper.
This, however, was the culmination of European involvement in the area dating back to when Thomas Archer (one of the seven Archer brothers who did so much to open up Central Queensland.
Take a closer look at the electorates, candidates and key seats. She denied there was a conflict of interest and said her decision to exercise her government’s “veto” to not support the loan came as the Liberal National Party LNP in Canberra was poised to launch a smear campaign against her in the run-down to the November 25 state election. Adani’s election shadow The Premier’s decision to veto a NAIF loan would seem to be a body blow to the mining project, because Adani would have to seek finance elsewhere for the rail line.
In May the company told 7. However the situation is confused by the Queensland election campaign, because Ms Palaszczuk can’t use her power of veto in caretaker mode, and LNP leader Tim Nicholls won’t agree. So the Adani project, which was already a major issue for the November 25 election, takes on even greater political significance. Adani hasn’t yet responded to requests for further comment. Advice sought from the Integrity Commissioner, to “avoid conflicts of interest in Shaun’s role and in my job as Premier of Queensland”, had cleared her of any wrongdoing, she said.
Ms Palaszczuk said her partner’s work for PwC was commercial-in-confidence, and so she had not known he was working on the Adani loan application because they had not discussed it. Take a look at what some of our readers had to say about Ms Palaszczuk withdrawing her Government’s involvement in funding Adani. Tim Nicholls says the Premier has “put thousands of jobs at risk with this extraordinary backflip”.
We are not the decision-makers, it’s the Federal Government. Mr Nicholls in a statement denied knowledge of any smear campaign and said Ms Palaszczuk had “failed” Queenslanders. Mick Tsikas He labelled the threat to veto any Queensland Government involvement in the loan as a “stunt”.

Settlements were subsequently established in Tasmania , Victoria , Queensland , the Northern Territory , Western Australia , and South Australia Australia was the exception to British imperial colonization practices, in that no treaty was drawn up setting out terms of agreement between the settlers and native proprietors, as was the case in North America, and New Zealand. In the 19th century, smallpox was the principal cause of Aboriginal deaths, and vaccinations of the “native inhabitants” had begun in earnest by the s.
The cause of the outbreak is disputed. Some scholars have attributed it to European settlers,   but it is also argued that Macassan fishermen from South Sulawesi and nearby islands may have introduced smallpox to Australia before the arrival of Europeans. The skeleton of Truganini , a Tasmanian Aboriginal who died in , was exhumed within two years of her death despite her pleas to the contrary by the Royal Society of Tasmania , and later placed on display.
Campaigns continue to have Aboriginal body parts returned to Australia for burial; Truganini’s body was returned in and cremated, and her ashes were scattered according to her wishes. Frontier Wars[ edit ] As part of the colonisation process, there were many small scale conflicts between colonists and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders across the continent. Since the s there has been more systematic research into this conflict which is described as the Australian frontier wars.

Although the majority of caves in the region have since been destroyed as a result of natural collapses and erosive activities, now-exposed breccias are remarkably abundant in fossils. The fossil faunas include the distant ancestors of the majority of modern Australian vertebrates, as well as extinct lineages such as those of the marsupial ‘lions’ Thylacoleonidae and the diprotodontoids, a group of oversized wombat-like marsupials.
Recent radiometric dating in the region, coupled with biochronology, demonstrates that the majority of Riversleigh’s fossil assemblages are Miocene in age ca. Notably, the younger end of the fossil record is poorly represented at Riversleigh, but other cave systems across northeastern Australia provide the necessary temporal extension that can document the emergence of the modern faunas and ecosystems. Chillagoe is also home to the enigmatic extinct land-dwelling crocodile, Quinkana fortirostrum.
Recent work in the region has also extended slightly southward to the Broken River karst system. The fossil assemblages in the Broken River caves mostly represent owl-roost accumulations, although deposits thought to be collected by ghost bats and natural pitfall traps have also been recognised. The oldest radiometrically dated fossil deposits are around ka thousand years old and include a combination of both extinct and extant faunas. Quaternary geographic range extensions have been recognised for several species including pig-footed bandicoots Chaeropus spp.
Further to the south, the Mt Etna region provides evidence of significant faunal and ecosystem change through the late Quaternary. Species of Cookeroo are distinguished from other basal macropodids by possessing a unique combination of characters including an expanded masseteric canal confluent with the mandibular canal that extends to below m1, a sinuous i1 with enamel on the buccal surface only and with dorsal and ventral flanges present, a dentary with a marked inflection of the ventral border below m3, bilophodont molars, and an elongate third premolar.
We assess the phylogenetic relationships of the genus using a combination of two previously published morphological matrices. Our analysis recovers Cookeroo species as early-branching members of a clade that also contains macropodines, sthenurines, and lagostrophines.
Some areas were reported to contain 23grams of gold per tonne, but assays generally showed less than 5grams of gold per tonne. Trial crushings in yielded grams of gold from The irregular and patchy nature of the mineralisation reduces the economic potential of this deposit. Traces of molybdenite and a copper silicate were reported to occur in thin quartz veins in the area.

Supercell thunderstorms will be a possibility over south east Queensland and New South Wales. By tomorrow, the clouds and drizzle could well have returned. But if you’re further north in New South Wales and in Queensland, you’ll have more to worry about than rain – the sunshine state could be about to become the supercell state. Forecasters have said a “storm outbreak” could bring ferocious weather delivering a drenching combined with damaging winds and hail.
From 50mm to around mm of rain could fall in parts of Queensland and up to 25mm down the NSW coast and into Victoria. Low pressure systems have also brought rain to Western Australia and the southern states including across Melbourne and Hobart. Despite the wet weather, meteorologists have cautioned that the drought is still far from over and with Australia now on “El Nino alert” there’s actually a higher likelihood of drier conditions across the country.
But it’s the unfolding weather drama in Queensland and northern NSW that has forecasters watching their weather maps.
