Abstract:
The response of salt marshes to sea level rise is dependent upon the availability of an adequate sediment supply and the subsequent rate of accretion of sediment on the salt marsh surface. On the north Sefton coast, the geomorphology and sedimentology of the area has resulted in the continued expansion of salt marsh within the outer reaches of the Ribble Estuary, enhanced by human activities over the last 200 years. The area has undergone significant human alteration in that time.
