Coastal Engineering students visit Botany Bay and Cronulla
Sixty budding coastal engineers from the CVEN9640 Coastal Engineering class were taken on a tour of of Botany Bay and southern Sydney by Water Research Laboratory Director Professor Ian Turner and Senior Research Associate Dr. Mitchell Harley. Among the places visited were the Banksmeadow Revetment, where they observed the 20 tonne tri-bar and dolos units placed along the reventment to protect Port Botany from wave attack. This was followed by a visit to various groyne structures around Lady Robinsons Beach and Kurnell. To finish the day, the students had a close inspection of the “seabee” seawall in Cronulla and observed different beach processes in action.
