Information Manual 8: Coastal sediments, beaches and soft shores
Author: Matt Eliot (Damara WA Pty Ltd)
This manual has been prepared for coastal managers who need to make decisions about the management of soft shores in the context of potential adaptation to climate change. It provides an overview of how coastal dynamics may be observed, interpreted and forecast in both high-level and detailed assessments. The benefits of using sediment compartments or sediment budget frameworks when evaluating regional coastal management are presented through some examples of practical applications.
