The authors would like to acknowledge the support, communication and discussion with numerous members of the former CRC for Coastal Zone, Estuary and Waterway Management. This study has also benefited from the constructive advice and feedback provided by scientific colleagues and State representatives at several conferences, NLWRA technical workshops, and Coastal CRC workshops, including: J. Parslow (CSIRO), B. Dennison, Dieter Tracey, and Jackie Robinson (University of Queensland), A. Moss (QEPA), Malcolm Dunning and John Baumer (QDPI), A. Steven (VIC NRE), B. Coates, D. Miller and P. Scanes (NSW EPA), D. Fotheringham and L. Barnett (DEH, SA), M. Robb (WRC, WA), Lynne Turner, Rob Fearon, and Don Alcock (Coastal CRC), Phil Haines (WBM Oceanics), Jane Harris (FRDC), C. Creighton, J. Tait and R. Lawson (NLWRA).

Also B. Allen and the GA library staff, who conducted several comprehensive literature searches, Joe Mifsud (GA) for graphic design of the 3-D block models, Craig Smith (GA) and Neville Montgomerie (GA) for web support, NSW DLWC for use of oblique aerial photographs, and GA staff who extensively reviewed this document, namely Emma Murray, Brendan Brooke, Peter Harris, and Graham Logan.

This work represents a contribution to Theme 5: Assessment and Monitoring of the former Coastal CRC.

Process models

The process models were developed by the former Cooperative Research Centre for Coastal Zone, Estuary & Waterway Research, and were originally housed at its site as part OzCoast.

Threat models

The threat models were developed by the former Cooperative Research Centre for Coastal Zone, Estuary & Waterway Research, and were originally housed at its site as part OzCoast.

Coastal stressors

Information provided by David Scheltinga and Andrew Moss of the Queensland Environmental Protection Agency. The information provided is extracted from an Estuarine Assessment Framework currently being developed and refined as part of the Queensland Government's Stream and Estuarine Assessment Program (SEAP), a trial of the national set of estuarine, coastal and marine indicators in Queensland and a trial of the indicators in the Burnett Mary Region (in collaboration with the Burnett Mary Regional Group). For further information please contact David Scheltinga or Andrew Moss.

Beach models

The beach models and accompanying text were kindly provided by Dr. Andrew D. Short. Andy is affiliated with University of Sydney, Surf life Saving Australia and Coastalwatch.

Beach data was provided by Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) from the Australian Beach Safety and Management Program (ABSAMP) which was developed as a joint venture between SLSA and The University of Sydney

Build your own conceptual model

The Build your own Conceptual Model component was developed by the former Cooperative Research Centre for Coastal Zone, Estuary & Waterway Research, and was originally housed at its site as part OzCoast.
