Brief description

The data that was collected for this thesis includes thermoluminescent dates, topographic surveys using a Sokkia total station, mapped stratigraphic changes sourced from the use of ground-penetrating radar (GPR), LiDAR, vegetation analyses, contemporary analogue comparison and bruun model testing, across five transects at Bengello Beach, NSW. The data was collected between 2007 and 2010. The date range of the beach ridge plain was to approximately 6000 cal BP. The data was used to identify periods of erosion and assess changes in sea level and wave climate throughout the late Holocene.

Lineage

Collection, use and interpretation of Ground Penetrating Radar data, survey data, Lidar data, mathematical model testing and application to assess if small-scale sea level changes, sediment supply changes and/or changes in wave climate throughout the Late Holocene triggered breaks in beach ridge progradation at around 6500, 6000, 5000, 3500 and 3000 cal BP.
a) Collection of thermoluminescent dates along the beach ridge plain at Bengello Beach.
b) Ground penetrating radar data collection, processing and analysis for stratigraphic evidence of sea level and wave climate changes and significant erosion events, such as erosion scarps.
c) Analysis of the beach ridge topograpy indicitaive of changes to sedimentary regime through LiDAR and total station data.
d) Testing of the Bruun model for sea level changes against the findings.
