Unconsolidated sediments cover over 110km² of the area of Jervis Bay below means high water mark. The present-day sediments, which provide habitats for a wide variety of marine organisms, are the products of Quarternary geological events, including dramatic sea level changes.
This paper reviews the information available regarding the geological history of the sediments in Jervis Bay, their present-day characteristics and the types of organisms that can be found inhabiting them. The subaerial sediments are described by Thom, in this volume.
