Coastal Entrances   Lessons Learnt and Future Challenges

Annual Full Day Seminar:  Coastal Entrances

 

Coastal entrances are a focal point of the coastal zone that drive environmental, recreational and economic outcomes for the state of NSW.  Being the confluence of catchment, estuarine and oceanographic processes, they provide an integral linkage in the sediment transport pathways between inland and coastal waters and adjacent coastlines.  They also provide a gateway for economic activity across large portions of the state. 

 

However, natural entrance behaviour is under constant threat as communities and industry intervene in the natural processes to manage the risk of flooding, improve aesthetic, recreational or environmental outcomes and maintain navigational access.

 

Additionally, with projected climate change (including a rise in mean sea level), there is potential for large and ongoing change to these critical systems that requires specific attention to maintain the functions and qualities of coastal entrances.

 

The NSW Coastal Ocean and Port Engineering Panel (COPEP) of Engineers Australia, in collaboration with PIANC Australia/New Zealand, has gathered a range of eminent speakers to share their experience and insights on coastal entrances.  Using case studies from across NSW, the seminar will provide a summary of past experience, lessons learnt and a discussion on future challenges to ensure the sustainable management and ongoing function of these environmental assets.

 

The seminar is open to anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of the underlying physical processes or strategies for improved management of coastal entrances from local ICOLLS and estuaries to major ports.

 

Attendees will be given the opportunity to engage with the speakers and contribute to discussion over the course of the day.
