dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project was to conduct a facilitated workshop with key researchers and stakeholders to establish priorities for future research investment of the NESP Tropical Water Quality Hub (NESP TWQ) into dredging and disposal of dredged sediments in the GBR. A recent independent review of potential impacts of dredging on the biological values of the GBR identified a number of key knowledge gaps that need to be addressed to improve management of dredging activities. That review, together with the findings of the currently underway dredging science node of the Western Australian Marine Institution (WAMSI), informed the subsequent prioritisation of research topics to address the most important gaps. The project team synthesised a list of 21 potential research sub-themes for consideration and prioritisation by researchers and stakeholders from industry and government agencies. The initial online survey identified six high priority sub-themes and these were presented and debated among the diverse participants at a subsequent workshop. en_US
