Future For Our Coastal Towns

Posted on: Fri 18 Oct 2019

Australians love property and being near water. But fast forward 30 years and the two may be incompatible, judging by global forecasts warning of sea level rises that could threaten thousands of coastal residents in decades to come.

New research from the University of South Australia analyses the storm surge risks to Port Adelaide and considers how authorities might prepare for such a scenario between now and 2100.

UniSA PhD candidate John Watson joins Breakfast to discuss more about this research.
