Abstract

The Mvoti River enters the Indian Ocean on the Natal coast of South Africa. The aims of the paper are a) to describe the geomorphology of the Mvoti river-mouth area, b) to outline sedimentary processes in the lower reaches of the river, c) to present a preliminary sedimentary model for this type of transitional fluvio-marine environment, and d) to illustrate the need for recognition of different types of estuaries and other fluvio-marine environments
