Sustainability of reclaimed foreshore – case study: Southport Broadwater Parklands
MetadataShow full item record
The sustainability of an upcoming reclamation project at Southport Parklands on the Gold Coast, Australia, was assessed. Southport Parklands has been under development for a long time, which led to irreversible damages to the coastal environment. Therefore, it is important to have a proactive design strategy for a sustainable development. In the present study, a numerical model has been established to simulate hydrodynamic processes. A better understanding of the physical processes advocated developers to adopt a proactive strategy for all new foreshore protection designing.
