WA Coastal Compartments Tertiary

Coastal compartments are structural features relating to geological features and landforms that can be used to provide a framework for planning and management of the coastine. The primary compartment boundaries for WA were determined by identifying major changes in rock type along the coast and changes in shoreline orientation, while incorporating complete landforms of coastal significance. The Primary compartments have been subdivided into secondary compartments based on landform associationsand then further subdivided into tertiary compartments based on individual landforms present. This dataset was commissioned by the Department of Planning and compiled by Damara Pty Ltd and the Geological Society of WA. A full report was also prepared to accompany the dataset, published August 2011. Some superficial changes have been made to the dataset since publication of the report in order to amalgamate the data into a nationwide compartment dataset developed by Geoscience Australia.Attribution for this dataset is incomplete and ongoing. Geological and geomorphological information will be added to the dataset as it acquired.
