CoPraNet: Proposed Measures for Enhancement of Amenity Beaches
Type of Entry:
There is a widespread perception of beach erosion at Newcastle that has prompted initiatives to improve the current amenity beach resource. Analysis of historical records of beach and shoreline status, coupled with numerical modelling of wave energy in the nearshore under contemporary and historical bathymetries, permits an analysis of the causes of the perceived deterioration in the beaches. Such analysis is essential for the design of ‘remedial’ measures and is outlined in this report.
