Wetlands discovery News: “an Australian exception” is found, as said by Dr. Jonathan Marshall, University of Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation chief scientist. Results disclosed by South Australian lead researcher John Tibby showed that North Stradbroke Island’s Ferngully Lagoon aren’t 15,000 to 20,000 years ice age old. Rather, they are rendezvoused back more than 200,000 years and additional wetlands on the island numerous than 40,000 years. At the same time, scientists are believing that this action by the researchers of University of Adelaide, South Australia and the University of Queensland, Brisbane has opened new doors for further discoveries. The action entailed measuring of core samples from North Stradbroke Island’s 16 wetlands. Scientists concluded the testing with one sample more than 200,000 years old and six were dating back to the ice age and earlier.
Wetlands discovery utterly pragmatic for Australian climate researchers
Queensland Minister for Innovation, Science and the Digital Economy and Minister for Small Business, Leeanne Enoch finds this study quite meaningful.
She believes that understanding first peoples, wildlife, and ancient climatic changes that shaped Australia will be easier after this discovery.
Researchers also believe that Brisbane’s Moreton Bay’s and world’s second-largest sand island – North Stradbroke Island might have contributed alternative while intense weather.
Referring to the importance of results of study “What we found is that on Stradbroke Island we have the largest concentration of wetlands that have existed since the Last Glacial Maximum — the driest and coldest part of the last 100,000 years of Earth’s history, about 20,000 years ago,” said lead researcher from University of Adelaide, Dr John Tibby.
Besides, just a day earlier, Wetlands Youth Summit teaches students about sea level rise. Wetlands discovery utterly pragmatic for Australian climate researchers News: Knowing about the age of formations of North Stradbroke Island’s can help scientists.
The summit was held at Terrebonne Parish’s North Library in Gray. There South Louisiana Wetlands Discovery Center executive director Jonathan Foret addressed 16-year-old Jillian Voisin and numerous others.
