This project will evaluate the magnitudes and frequencies of Catastrophic Marine Inundation Events (CMIEs) from a range of prehistoric occupation sites as well as putative CMIE deposits and natural sedimentary deposits on selected at risk WA shorelines. Quantifying recurrence intervals for CMIEs is essential for managing future risk to coastal populations and infrastructure. It is also essential for interpreting coastal landscape evolution and Aboriginal landscape use over the past 6000 years.
