CAPRICORN COAST BEACHES

D.C. Patterson, L.R. Ford

Abstract


The Beach Protection Authority of Queensland published in December 1979 a report outlining the results of its investigation into all the factors which determine the coastal behaviour of the 90 km strip of Central Queensland's coastline known as the Capricorn Coast (Fig. 1). The purpose of the investigation was to provide a detailed explanation of beach behaviour in this area including all the data necessary for the preparation of a comprehensive program of works and management strategies for improving beach conditions and minimising present and future erosion problems. This paper represents a brief summary of the contents of the published report.
