AN APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING COASTAL PROCESSES

A.D. Gordon, D.B. Lord

Abstract


The approach adopted in N.S.W. for investigating coastal processes leading to development of a numero-descriptive model for management purposes is outlined. The technique involves the formation of a regional coastal model and its adaptation to site specific cases. This site specific conceptual model is then tested and modified on the basis of theoretical calculation and field data collection. Two specific case histories are outlined.
