  Information - IS70 - GM6.1/HS7.5 Coasts and Estuaries (co-organized by GM & HS)

Event Information
Coasts and estuaries are dynamic environments of multi-scale interactions between land and water that are of great human and economic interest. This open session invites presentations on all aspects of the coastal geomorphic system, including: surf zone and wave shoaling, swash zone dynamics, beach morphology and sediments, berm development, back-beach environments, coastal dune systems, lagoons, estuaries, bays, barrier island systems, mud-flats and coastal marsh lands, deltas, rock-platforms, cliff erosion processes, and other coastal and estuarine landforms and processes. The session covers sedimentary and erosional systems, the full range of temporal and spatial scales, experimental results and theoretical models, and also considers the impacts of climate change and sea-level rise.
