>>> NWSJEMS The study

The North West Shelf Joint Environmental Management Study (NWSJEMS) was a $7.7 million marine environmental study of the North West Shelf jointly funded by CSIRO and the Western Australian Government. The overarching objective was to develop and demonstrate practical science-based methods that could support integrated regional planning and multiple-use management of the North West Shelf marine ecosystem.

>>> Results and Outcomes

The results of the NWSJEMS have been documented in a series of 18 Technical Reports covering reviews of pre-existing information, accessing information, modelling physical and biological processes, characterising human activities and impacts, and evaluation of management strategies.

The final report for the study attempts to give a broad overview of the products and enhanced scientific understanding generated by the NWSJEMS.
