    The factors and processes that influence the rate and spatial distribution of sediment accretion within the salt marsh are numerous. Sediment deposition can occur when marsh species provide a surface for the sediment to adhere to, followed by deposition onto the marsh surface when the sediment flakes off at low tide. The amount of sediment adhering to salt marsh species is dependent on the type of marsh species, the proximity of the species to the sediment supply, the amount of plant biomass, and the elevation of t

  • What Is A Salt Marsh And How Is It Formed? - WorldAtlas

    Dec 21, 2017  A salt marsh is a special type of wetland habitat that can be found along coastal regions throughout the world, although it is most commonly found in mid-range and high-range latitude areas. The comparable habitat in tropical areas is known as a mangrove. A salt marsh may also be known as a tidal marsh or a coastal salt marsh.

    Background Salt marshes lie between many human communities and the coast and have been presumed to protect these communities from coastal hazards by providing important ecosystem services. However, previous characterizations of these ecosystem services have typically been based on a small number of historical studies, and the consistency and extent to which marshes provide these services

    The seaward salt marsh edge extends further down on the vertical gradient with an increase of the tidal range (Balke et al., 2016). Hence, the tidal range may potentially influence the salt marsh size positively. The position of salt marshes is thus related to the prevailing geomorphological and hydrological conditions in a tidal basin.
