Abstract

This study investigates coastal processes using a sediment budget approach based on the concept of conservation of mass at a decadal time scale. Assessments of the sedimentary characteristics, contributions (sources), losses (sinks), and transport pathways were conducted for the Shoalhaven coastal compartment, a secondary level compartment defined by Geoscience Australia, that stretches for 32 km of coastline in southeastern Australia and that shows no evidence of sediment contributions from the south nor losses towards the north.
