“The June 2016 Coastal Storm – the event, damage, response and lessons”

The June 2016 Coastal Storm as a media sensation with dramatic images of damage across NSW. However, it wasnt the largest storm seen in NSW, now was damage entirely unexpected.

Recent advances in ocean, beach and structure monitoring together with an abundance of imagery and videography provides an unprecendented opportunity to learn from the effects of this storm.

This seminar will review the storm conditions, the damage observed across NSW, and the emergency response as it happened. A panel discussion will explore what can be learnt from this event to make our coastal communities safer, maritime infrastructure more resilient, and how to achieve these within conflicting stakeholder expectations.
