Intertidal high energy over unconsolidated substrate of unknown texture
Intertidal high energy over unconsolidated substrate where both biota and texture is unknown.
Disclaimer: Ecosystem type descriptions are based on biophysical attributes identified in Central Queensland through expert advice and supported by scientific literature. Not all ecosystem types are mapped based on current inventory, and many of the ecosystems described here may also occur in other parts of Queensland.
Intertidal very high to moderate energy over unconsolidated substrate where both biota and texture is unknown. Substrate not mapped, no data available. The purpose of this type is to identify gaps in data.
Inundation 'Intertidal – Lower low', 'Intertidal – Mid low', 'Intertidal – Upper low', 'Intertidal – Low undifferentiated', 'Intertidal – Lower medium', 'Intertidal – Upper-medium', 'Intertidal – Medium undifferentiated', 'Intertidal – High', 'Intertidal – Undifferentiated', 'Intertidal – High undifferentiated'
Energy magnitude (wave) 'Medium', 'High', 'Very High'
Structural macrobiota 'Unknown'
Sediment texture 'Unknown'
