Coastal Modelling and Management

The natural forces of winds, waves and currents constantly shape our coastline, resulting in an ever changing seascape.

Beaches are eroded and rebuilt, nearshore seabeds and river channels are remodelled, sediments are carried to the coast and significant proportions of the foreshore continue to recede. Human activities can have a major impact.

The challenge is to meet the increasing pressure to develop the coastal zone with environmentally sound practices - ensuring that coastal amenity and natural character are protected.

BMT specialises in developing programs which can satisfy these demands. Highly respected teams of professional engineers and scientists investigate all facets of the physical and ecological coastal system, designing strategies which balance the needs of human existence with the activity and beauty of nature.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in Australia and India.
