Geoscience Australia recently hosted the 16th biennial meeting of the National Estuaries Network in Canberra.

This national forum brings together coastal and estuary managers from around Australia, as well as invited estuary researchers, to share their knowledge and to learn about the latest in scientific research.

Geoscience Australia provides web-based tools, geoscientific data, and coastal environmental information through the OzCoasts website and supports the National Estuaries Network as a way of building a bridge between science, management, the community and policy making organisations. These forums are a key mechanism for linking estuarine decision makers with scientists.
