Estuaries of the georgia coast usa sedimentology and biology part 7 hydrography and sediments of the duplin river sapelo island georgia



Senckenbergiana Maritima 7: 237-256



The Duplin River, a tidal tributary to Doboy Sound, is 11 km long and lies on the west margin of Sapelo Island. Distribution of sediment textures and the physical and biogenic sedimentary structures in the Duplin River indicate a gradual increase in physical energy in a seaward direction. Even at the head of the river and throughout its extent, physical sedimentary structures are more abundant than biogenic sedimentary structures. In contrast to the adjacent Doboy Sound, the Duplin River is low in mud content and contains large accumulations of shell material most of which are derived from oyster beds along the river banks. Ebb and flood currents show marked differences. Duration of flood is greater than ebb, but ebb velocities are significantly greater than flood. At several places along its course the Duplin River is actively eroding into sandy Pleistocene deposits. The Duplin River, in contrast to other estuaries studied on the Georgia coast, apparently acts as a sediment source area rather than the site of sediment accumulation.
