Abstract

The NR14, Coastal Environment Geoscience Survey project utilises a wide variety of information and techniques to compile the basic coastal geoscientific information necessary for the development of a land use strategy for Cape York Peninsula. The report therefore provides a statement of the methodology employed, together with results of the data analyses undertaken and coastal geoscience GIS coverages completed to date. The project was undertaken to produce a geoscientific synthesis of the evolution and character of the coastal zone of Cape York Peninsula to include: - assessment of the oceanographic and meteorological processes affecting the coastal area; - documentation of the character of coastal environments and the nature of sedimentary deposits within them; - analysis of Holocene evolution of the coastal zone; - identification of areas of significant instability; and - consideration of issues relevant to sustainable use.
