Centre for Research on Ecological Impacts of Coastal Cities

The role of the Centre for Research on Ecological Impacts of Coastal Cities (EICC) is to do world-class research on ecological problems arising from urbanisation of coastal environments. We work with councils, regulatory agencies, Federal, State and Local Governments to identify problems and suggest valid solutions based on experimental evidence. Many currently positive solutions lack proper support from rigorous data collection. By treating environmental problems as ecological experiments, then using appropriate experimental designs to test relevant hypotheses, we can provide better solutions.
