  3. 3. ACEF ObjectivesGoal: • Provide enduring access to coastal data of national importanceObjectives 1. Establish a coastal community of practice to identify key coastal datasets, improve technologies and identify further funding opportunities. 2. Identify key national datasets that need to be collected, and fund strategic research that address key gaps in these datasets. 3. Enable improved digital access to quality-assured coastal observational data and methods for analysis & visualisationMuch more than just data … • informing coastal planning and development • linking otherwise separate datasets • assisting natural resource management • creating coastal researcher collaborations
  4. 4. Science and Management Questions• How, are coastal ecosystems changing in response to anthropogenic pressures and climate change?• How is the productivity of coastal ecosystems related to terrestrial subsidies and how will climate change affect these ecosystems?• How is coastal geomorphology changing in relation to climate change and extreme events?• How far do vagile coastal and marine organisms move and what are the key coastal habitats they depend upon?• Can we measure the relative benefits/impacts of legislated environmental management programs on Australia’s coastal ecosystems?• What are the key gaps in understanding of coastal ecosystems or in management of the flora, fauna and processes of these ecosystems?
