Gold Coast has been observed to have a series of sandy barrier beaches that are backed by lagoonal areas and floodplain areas. These areas were a major tourist attraction. Nevertheless, the climate changes have impacted the development in the recent years. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), it says that the Australia’s population would increase from 30.9 and 42.5 million by the year 2056. This would be between 33.7 and 62.2 million by the year 2101. This has predicted that the larger percentage of the increased population would live in the coastal zone. These state that the climatic predictions of higher temperatures are observed to be correct. Along the eastern seaboard, the coastline is currently developed for the residential uses. A high level of increase in the population would put more risk on the coastal zone and this can increase the urgency for the adaptation of sea level rises and higher levels of storm waves. This showcases the requirement of research that is needed in this case. It cannot be refuted that more resources and researches are needed to address this issue in the areas. These changes owing to man-made activities impact the geographical point of view. From a topological point of view, the barriers and back-barriers areas have extensive nuanced development. The sand barriers are developed under south to north drift systems that terminate in the three barrier islands. These three barrier islands are South and North Stradbroke Islands and Moreton Island. Inter-annual variability in the modern wave climate is marked by the atmospheric modes of the variability. Dramatic increases in the wave heights and changes in the wave pattern have been observed from 1960 onwards. These are not considered to be one aspect of the history of variability. It is observed that a natural variability that is observed in the wave climate and the role of the anthropogenic forces in the areas are uncertain. Owing to this, it is evident that there are significant changes in the climate in the recent years. This is an example of the global climatic changes that is occurring in the region. By studying the nuances of this storm wave and development of predictive models, it can produce solutions that are feasible. These have been probed in detail in this research.
