The Coastal Lab can undertake a range of professional services, offering professional advice and technical monitoring on almost all coastal systems.
We use a range of techniques to understand the coast including Laser Total Stations, UAVs/Drones, Wave Pressure Sensors, Laser Particle Sizing, Aerial Mapping, Historical Photo Analysis and Subsurface Coring.
Below are some of the key services that we have undertaken for clients including Melbourne Water; Alluvium Consultants; Murray Darling Basin Authority; Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning; Federal Department of Environment, AusAID, Victorian Coastal Council, Surf Life Saving Australia, the NSW Premiers Department and West Gippsland and Corangmite Catchment Management Authorities.
Erosion & Shoreline Monitoring
Analysis of historical shoreline change
Assessments of future shoreline positions
Modelling of estuary entrance condition
Quantifying sediment infill rates
Assessing human impact
Grain size analysis
We can analyse all sediment from 0.4 microns upwards using a Beckman Coulter LP 13320 laser particle sizer.
Sediment can be soil, mud, sand, gravel both wet and dry.
