Abstract

The AA. combine sedimentary with documentary evidence to examine the medium-term evolution of Pagham Harbour, southern England, following storm-induced breaching of a protective barrier in AD 1910. Their approach relies on the use of stratigraphic and radiometric dating (Pb 210 and Cs 137 dating), together with diatom analyses, to identify the pre-inundation surface and determine patterns of post-inundation sedimentation. This work is important to validate salt marsh accretion models used for predicting coastal responses to flooding, either due to natural processes or as a result of managed-realignment strategies
