The impact of sea-level rise on coastal salt marshes

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

REED D. J. ;


The response of coastal marshes to relative sea-level rise depends upon their ability to maintain their relative elevation through sedimentation. The marshes themselves represent a balance between contemporary depositional and erosional forces. Despite increased international efforts to clarify the response of sea level to future climatic change, predictions of the effect on coastal marshes still requires further understanding of local subsidence, sediment supply and vegetation factors
