Creeks are essential for salt marshes by conveying water and sediment through this geomorphic system. In this paper, we investigate the mechanisms that determine the residual sediment flux using measurements conducted in tidal creeks in salt marshes of the Yangtze Estuary. A main creek and a secondary creek were studied to explore whether the...

Marsh creeks are perceived as important conduits for transporting water and sediment between mudflats and marshes. In order to advance the understanding of the transport mechanisms in creeks, the source and ultimate sink of sediment which moves between mudflats and marshes through creek channels need further investigation. Therefore, two...

Mangroves have been proven to be an asset to coastlines because of their myriad advantages relating to coastal protection and stability. Unfortunately, in the past, due to economic necessities or other reasons, many of these mangrove swamps in tropical areas came under threat and were subsequently destroyed. As the awareness about the positive...

The interaction between vegetation and the morphodynamics is considered to be an important process in salt marsh formation and succession. Therefore, the contribution of vegetation modelling on the long-term morphological development of salt marshes is assessed by implementing a vegetation growth model in the morphodynamic modelling software...

Local inhabitants were of the opinion that a river, or waterway, had existed North of Delweg. There were so-called "groundless" ditches (soft bottomed) and "Uterdieken" (lands outside the dykes). This old waterway therefore would have had no locks but small dykes. Borings and pressure soundings proved this idea to be true. The canal must have...

Where the top layer of clayey substance was thin and the underlying peat layer thick, the shrinkage of the latter had been such that the clay-filled gullies appeared as ridges of about ½ to 1 m high in the field. Farmers sometimes call these ridges ,,natural dykes". In some places they have dug up parts of these ancient depots of good clay and...
