Abstract

Marsh loss in the Nanticoke estuary dates from the 1920 s. Since 1938 overall rate of loss has averaged 49.6 ha annually, with rates increasing down estuary. Most losses have occurred in submerged upland marshes| tidal freshwater marshes are stable. Interior ponding has been the primary mechanism of loss. Rising water levels are postulated to be the underlying force behind marsh losses in this estuary
