SST3130 Coastal Zone Management
Credit Points: 15

Coastal management issues and approaches are investigated in this unit.  Topics such as coastal system dynamics, catchment to coast, coastal planning management roles and responsibilities, sustainable coastal management and human impact on the coastal zone are considered.  Physical properties of beaches and the adjacent neritic zone are also studied.  While much of the focus of this unit is on the Western Australian seashore, national and global coastal management are also deliberated.  A fieldwork study involving sand dune restoration is an essential component of the unit assessment.
