Abstract

An accretionary budget is developed for Barataria Basin fresh, brackish-intermediate and salt marshes located along a salinity gradient extending inland from the coast. The mineral sediment and organic carbon requirement of individual marsh units in response to water level increase is presented. The life span of salt marshes of the Mississippi River deltaic plain are estimated to be approximately 100 years
