River sediment monitoring for baseline and change characterisation: A new management tool for the Ramu River Communities in Papua New Guinea
The 18 719-km2 Ramu drainage basin has a water quality regime largely unaffected by mining operations. The Ramu River Communities believe that this may change over the coming months and years, and have initiated their own state-of-the-art monitoring of the main river.
