Powerful research, practical solutions
Our research aims to help communities build coastal resilience, protect the environment and plan for the future. We can also access other Griffith University research centres, such as the Cities Research Institute and the Griffith Climate Change Response Program, making our centre one of the most comprehensive, all-encompassing coastal advisory services in Australia.
Modelling and management of Gold Coast estuaries and canals.
Projects exploring beach profiles, reef sediment, surf and shoreline management and surfer demographics.
Coastal ocean dynamics
Understanding physical processes in shallow ocean water driven by oceanic drivers.
Climate change impact and adaptation
Researching the effects of climate change and overcoming challenges in decision making.
Infrastructure and technology
Projects exploring recycled water release, performance testing of stormwater devices.
Catchments and waterways
Research programs focussed on the issues characteristic of human‐impacted coastal environments.
