Salt marsh sedimentation over the past c. 120 years along the West Cotentin Coast of Normandy (France): Relationship to sea-level rise and sediment supply



Salt marsh sedimentation over the past c. 120 years along the West Cotentin Coast of Normandy (France): Relationship to sea-level rise and sediment supply



Journal of Coastal Research 19(3): 609-620



Natural high sediment supply to a number of macrotidal estuaries along the western coast of the Cotentin Peninsula (Normandy, France) is resulting in estuarine infilling. A previously published aerial survey in one estuary shows salt marsh laterally expanding at a rate of 4400m2/y.
