    When the banks of a marsh channel accumulate sediment at a faster rate than relative sea level rise, it may seem like the marsh is resilient, Louisiana State University said in its latest paper. The new study proposes a new framework to look at sediment fluxes in marsh channels that takes into account the natural process of […]
