Deception Bay is an area where new and old planning approaches are converging on the associated shoreline and catchments. The reconstruction and understanding of past changes provides a strong basis for assessing current status and devising targeted management strategies. This project will use historical data (including a hydrodynamic model) to determine how different landscape and development approaches alter environmental processes and performance with the aim to identify ways of mediating the impacts or establishing better practices.
