  • This record provides an overview of the NESP Marine and Coastal Hub small-scale study - "OzSET: Integration and publication of the Australian Surface Elevation Table dataset". For specific data outputs from this project, please see child records associated with this metadata. -------------------- Australian coastal floodplains and wetlands are threatened by accelerating rates of sea-level rise. The assessment of vulnerability of these environments requires measurements of rates of vertical accretion, subsidence and elevation gain across a range of coastal settings. Australia’s network of Surface Elevation Tables is one of the most extensive in the world, consisting of over 200 benchmark monitoring stations from Westernport Bay, Victoria to Darwin Harbour, NT. We collate and make available through a national platform data on accretion, subsidence and elevation change in mangroves, saltmarshes, seagrasses and tidal freshwater forests, information vital to coastal risk assessment. Planned Outputs • SET-MH database: collation of data from existing Surface Elevation Table (SET-MH) stations [dataset] • Final technical report with analysed data, including a short summary of recommendations for policy makers of key findings [written]
