About this book

Located between sea and land, salt marshes are complex environments that provide critical ecosystem functions, such as production of organic material and nutrient cycling. This book examines the geomorphology of salt marshes with emphasis on the interaction between landscape and biota.

Discussions include:
Recent results on the coupled evolution of geomorphologic and ecosystem structures.
New remote sensing techniques for precise descriptions of vegetation in the marsh landscape.
How biophysical processes influence sediment transport.
