The June 2016 Australian East Coast Low: Importance of Wave Direction for Coastal Erosion Assessment
by Thomas R. Mortlock , Ian D. Goodwin, John K. McAneney and Kevin Roche
In June 2016, an unusual East Coast Low storm affected some 2000 km of the eastern seaboard of Australia bringing heavy rain, strong winds and powerful wave conditions. While wave heights offshore of Sydney were not exceptional, nearshore wave conditions were such that beaches experienced some of the worst erosion in 40 years.
