The coast is where many Australians live, work and undertake their recreation. Coastal regions are dynamic systems containing significant natural and biodiverse habitats that are subject to both natural and anthropogenic change and stressors. 

UQ researchers are examining the natural biogeochemical dynamics of coastal and reef environments in the Indo-Pacific, and the impacts of coastal land use and catchment development combined with changing sea levels and chemistry.

Our researchers include a diverse mix of geo- and biogeochemists, sedimentologists, ocean modellers and geomorphologists.
