This website was initially designed to allow quick and easy access to wave data for coastal research by a team of UWA researchers including Dr Jeff Hansen, Dr Michael Cuttler, Prof Ryan Lowe, and Mr Carlin Bowyer whose research interests focus on understanding physical processes in coastal environments and linking these to evolution of the coast over a range of time scales. The team utilises a range of field (including remote and in situ instrumentation), laboratory, and numerical techniques to study and monitor physical processes operating along the Western Australian coastline. Check out our coastal images site at which aims to photographically document the change in the coastline between Rockingham and Cape Naturaliste.
