Gary Teear Presentation - Mitigating coastal hazards and protecting communities
We would like to change the narrative around coastal hazards from negative to finding solutions. There is very little discussion about solutions. Help us change that.
Gary Teear from OCEL is talking about coastal engineering solutions and the issues posed by rising seas.
Recently, Gary prepared an environmentally sympathetic protection plan for the South Shore Residents Association and is part of the expert group designing and implementing the estuary bund and cycleway.
Gary Teear has a wide range of experience, both within New Zealand and internationally, in sub-sea and coastal engineering, marine structures and soil mechanics, piling, sediment movement and dredging. Gary has had a long association with Lyttleton Port.
The PPT sideshow that Gary used in the presentation is available on request.
