This study was conducted in the coastal zone located in Cäciliengroden, Jadebusen Bay (North Germany). The aim was to examine the changes in organic matter properties along a salt marsh soil chronosequence. Three soil profiles were located in low, middlehigh and high marsh zones, between the mud flat tidal area and the dike. The AA. propose a pattern of spatial changes in properties of salt marsh soils along the studied chronosequence. The results lead to the conclusion that some organic matter properties (C:N, humic to fulvic acid ratios and aromaticity of the humic acids) are good indicators for the extent of development of the studied soils
