This conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in new methods, empirical datasets, conceptual models and theoretical developments related to fluxes and transformations in the river-estuary transition zone. There will be opportunities to review recent developments in the field and to identify avenues for future research.
The conference features oral presentations within the following key themes:
• Sediment, nutrient and pollution delivery from catchments to coasts
• Process dynamics and sedimentary archives of tidally-influenced rivers
• Estuarine morphodynamics and material fluxes
• Modelling and management of floods in the river-estuary transition zone
• Impacts of environmental change on river-estuary systems
The conference will promote interaction between researchers and practitioners working at the important catchment-coastal interface, as well as enhance our knowledge of tidally influenced rivers, which form a critical process link between terrestrial catchments and the marine environment.
• Philip Ashworth (University of Brighton) - Sedimentology of tidally-influenced fluvial deposits
• Kim Cohen (Utrecht University) - The trapping of fluvial-tidal sediment in the Rhine Delta through the Holocene
• Daniel Parsons (University of Hull) - Sounding out rivers and coastlines: Substantive advances in understanding morphodynamics through innovative application of multibeam sonar technology
