Professor Hesp said he was honoured to be appointed and that it was a fantastic opportunity to assist the SA Government in coastal processes research and management issues, and to pass this knowledge onto Flinders coastal students.

This is great news for SA Coast and especially for the protection of coastal dunes. Congratulation Professor Hesp.
