18 CrossCurrent Queensland's Fitzroy River catchment have impacted reefs as far as 50km from the mouth of the river. Scientists sought to study how extreme rainfall and ood events around the Fitzroy River are controlled by the interplay between short and long-term climate cycles in the Paci c Ocean and how that, in turn, affects coral health. The Government will inject $11 million into Queensland's Murray- Darling Basin communities to improve ef ciency of irrigation in the catchment. Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for the Environment, Senator Simon Birmingham, and Queensland Minister for Natural Resources and Mines, Andrew Cripps, said the funding would provide much needed upgrades to the resources and agriculture industries.
