This topic concentrates on the geological and oceanographic processes operative on the inner shelf-nearshore and beach environments. We will explore the mechanisms responsible for sea-level change and implications to coastal processes worldwide and in Australia. The propagation of surface gravity waves across the shelf to the adjacent coast will be investigated along with nearshore coastal processes. Wave and wind driven sand transport in the littoral zone will be discussed and the importance of storms presented. Finally, we will explore contemporary issues in coastal processes and implications for the applied aspect of the science.
