Chelsea Tresidder's insight:

Coastal errosion is a major problem in australia and needs to be adapted to. With most of our population living alone the coast line, errosion will lead in people loosing houses, societys and rural areas will become more populated.

Grace Macpherson's curator insight, July 27, 2013 11:27 PM

Australia's coastlines are subject to much destruction, from huan interaction, natural processes and also largely climate change. Many of the tourist becaches have seen  dramatic changes over the years. Some coastal areas have training walls or seawalls to help manage the great destruction, yet the Government  has also let buidings and houses line the forshore, and as the tide rises many people will be left packing. Much has been done but as climate change increases Austrlia's coastlines will suffer extreme errosion and weathering. the damge differs from area to area because of the amount of human activity, we need to properly manage our print on these becahes for future generations will have becahes to swim on. Governments along with welfare and managemnt groups are trying inivitative ways to prevent further destruction and help rebuild our coasts.

Lake Mac council motion on sea level rise gets national backing
ABC Online
Lake Macquarie mayor Jodi Harrison says coastal councils particularly want solutions to tackle the predicted rise in sea levels.
