OzCoasts provides comprehensive information about Australia's coast, including its estuaries, coastal waterways and climate change impact. This helps to generate a better understanding of coastal environments, the complex processes that occur in them, the potential environmental health issues. OzCoasts is managed by the Seabed Mapping and Coastal Information section at Geoscience Australia, and represents a collaborative effort of more than 100 scientists and mangers from across Australia.
