Ocean and coastal waves
Ocean waves build and maintain beaches, promote diversity in marine habitats and ecology, and provide recreational amenity for swimmers and surfers. Ocean waves distribute sand along the coast and onto beaches, where it is continuously recycled between surf zone bars, the beach and dunes.
Marine and coastal research and monitoring
We undertake marine and coastal research and monitoring to better understand the underwater environment, and the impacts of land use in coastal catchments on estuaries and coastal lakes.
