The Sino-Australian Research Centre for Coastal Management invites applicants for a UNSW Scientia PhD Scholarship

 

Project name: Downscale Modelling of a Macro-Tidal Estuary under Climatic Scenarios

 

The rapid expansion of Australian major ports has caused concerns within both the scientific community and the general public about the possible environmental implications. Previous collaborations with China have further emphasised these environmental implications where port development is proceeding without care for the environment. It is expected that these issues will be exacerbated by climate change such as sea level rise and increased weather extremes. This research project proposed will provide an assessment of the impacts that may occur in Darwin Harbour under a changing climate, as well as an increased level of anthropogenic and environmental forcing.
