The Torres Strait Baseline Study: Environmental Protection of a Tropical Marine Environment in Northern Australia
This paper discusses the potential impacts of mining in the Fly River catchment area of Papua New Guinea on the Torres Strait marine environment and the customary ways of life of the Torres...

Numerical Simulation of Larval Dispersal and Recruitment to Coral Reefs from the Mainstream Water Circulation
Coral reef systems, such as the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, are characterized by populations of fish and invertebrates that, mostly, produce offspring as pelagic larvae. Although some...

Shore Protection Conflicting Objectives in Decision Making
Shore protection, in an era of rising sea levels and declining sediment budgets, is emerging as a priority item in coastal management. Yet to the traditional conflict between man and nature...

Sand Movement by Wind—Optimising Predictive Power
The aim of the work reported here was to develop a model for the efficient utilisation of standard anemometer data for the prediction of potential sand movement. Accurate aeolian sand...

Suspended Sediment Load at Three Time Scales
Suspended sediment loads were examined at the three time scales of time-series-averaged, wave-by-wave and instantaneous during the wave cycle. Field measurements recorded on a natural...

Migrating East Australian Barriers and Reefs Under Greenhouse Scenario
Geological evidence which bears directly on the question of human-induced sea-level change and migrating shorelines is difficult to find. If we could find an ancient analog of the rapid...

Prefabricated Power Plants, Experience and Prospects
This paper presents the prefabrication concept applied to the Greenup (Greenup Locks and Dam, Ohio River, 72 MW, 1982) and the Sydney A. Murray, Jr. (Old River Control Structures, Vidalia,...

Lysimeter Studies in Irrigated Soils of South Eastern Australia
The Riverine Plain of south eastern Australia is an extensive, predominantly clay soil area with large surface irrigation schemes. Early lysimeter installations were used to estimate evaporative...

Australian Lysimeter Studies of Field Evaporation
Evaporation data are summarised from separate lysimeter installations involving forest, crops and pastures along the 35°S parallel in south-eastern Australia. In each study, lysimeter...

Performance of Unreinforced Masonry Buildings During the Newcastle Earthquake, Australia
On December 28, 1989, an earthquake of Richter magnitude 5.6 shook the city of Newcastle. Newcastle is situated on the east coast of Australia only 100km north of Sydney. Eleven deaths...

Comparison of Traffic Signal Systems in Australia and North America
Dynamic coordinated traffic signal systems were developed in Australia in the 1970's, and are now installed in many countries. In contrast, strong interest in new generation...

Marinas and Waterfront Redevelopment, Brisbane
This paper describes a selection of marina projects which are being developed at locations of abandoned commercial wharves in the Brisbane River, and the impact of this transformation...

A New Australian Standard for Marinas
The paper describes the procedure adopted to develop the Standard together with a description of the more important issues that were addressed....

Aircraft Flexible Pavement Design in Australia
After World War Two, aircraft pavement design practice in Australia was largely developed from the work done by the U.S. Corps of Engineers. The C.B.R. pavement design method now differs...

Statistical Analysis of Australian Ground Snow Loads
This paper is concerned with the statistical analysis of snow data from the alpine areas of southeastern Australia (above 1200 m). In these areas, the local variation is large and contour...

The Use of Prototyping and Graphical Methods for Road Information and Management Systems
Graphics approaches to Pavement Management Systems offer a substantial aid to the early acceptance of and accessibility to the Road Information Systems presently available. The Apple Macintosh...
