Fair Food Forager / Paul Hellier

Professor Colin Woodroffe is a coastal geomorphologist currently at the University of Wollongong. He has an international research focus on the morphology, stratigraphy and sedimentary dynamics of tropical and subtropical coasts, and the application of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to the study of processes and change in the coastal zone.

Some of Colin's research includes
2017 - Integrating millennial and interdecadal shoreline changes: Morpho-sedimentary investigation of two prograded barriers in southeastern Australia
2017 - Geology and sedimentary history of modern estuaries |
2016 - Mangrove sedimentation and response to relative sea-level rise

In this episode we chat about sea level rise, storm activity and the coastal processes interacting with wetlands, beaches and estuaries. Importantly we discuss the multitude of factors that influence the form of our coastal landscape in order to highlight that solutions are not always simple cost effective.
