The Coasts and Ports Conference series is the pre-eminent forum in the Australasian region for professionals to meet and discuss issues extending across all disciplines relating to coasts and ports.

It brings together engineers, planners, scientists, stakeholders and researchers to focus on the technological, scientific, policy, planning and design issues related to the region’s diverse and developing coasts.

Dr Ralph Rayner, BMT Group Sector Director for Energy and Environment, said: “The breadth and depth of the topics being presented by BMT employees at Coasts & Ports 2015 demonstrates the range of knowledge and expertise available to clients from BMT in Australasia.

Presentations from BMT WBM will include:

  • How technical assessments of dredging undertaken as part of Environmental Impact Assessments have evolved in the light of the new guidelines and in the broader context of increasing demand from stakeholders for greater certainty about short and long term impacts;
