Welcome to COHESION, a magazine showcasing completed research projects completed by researchers in the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Science at Edith Cowan University. COHESION profiles Faculty of Health, Engineering and Science research projects with socio-economic and environmental impact.


The Faculty of Health, Engineering and Science publishes several editions of COHESION Magazine each year, by subscribing to our free mailing list you will be automatically notified when each new edition is published.


Where previous studies have compared competition and recreation surfers, this study attempts to distinguish between the physical capacities of closely-matched groups of elite junior competitive surfers.

Elite surfers have the edge for international selection

Researchers set out to discover what physiological and performance differences set elite surfers apart when competing for selection.

Despite some dairy products such as cheese being energy dense, dairy products were not associated with increased risk of obesity. Nor was the overall energy density of the diet.

Energy density, dairy ‘not associated with increased obesity risk’

Some people steer away from the cheese aisle, thinking that this will help reduce their risk of obesity. Yet the evidence for this notion is more limited than many might think.

Fishing catch research pinpoints best assessment method

ECU researchers are working on tools to improve future fishing management and conservation by developing effective geostatistical methods with which to model the spatial distributions of recreational fishing catch rates.


The Faculty has published COHESION Magazine for many years, with many interesting articles highlighting the very varied research undertaken by our researchers. We encourage you to explore our current and past editions.
