Abstract

Australia is a distinctly coastal-focused nation, with more than 85 percent of Australians living within the narrow coastal strip. The coast is also the major economic focus of industry, trade and tourism. Australian identity and environmental values are deeply tided to life at the coast. Around Australia there is presently no state or nationally coordinated early warning capability to alert emergency managers and residents to impending damaging impacts of coastal storms. This presentation outlines the work that is underway to design and evaluate a new national-scale beach erosion EWS system for Australia.
