Climate Change Impacts, Snapper Point
Local foreshore climate change impact for Snapper Point. Snapper Point, within the City of Onkaparinga Local Government Area, is approximately 50km south of Adelaide.
The objectives of the Snapper Point project were similar to those for Christies Beach in terms of vulnerability to future climate changes influences; and to more specifically address:
- The need for coastal protection measures at the toe/cliff base at Snapper Point.
- The potential for significant gullying (similar to Sellicks Beach) along the cliff faces at Snapper Point.
- Develop recommendations that Council can use to manage and protect Snapper Point at Aldinga Beach given future climate change predictions that will potentially impact the coast.
This Climate Change Impacts, Snapper Point, Study was completed by Coastal Engineering Solutions, now a part of Water Technology.
