    • Alongshore sediment bypassing as a control on river mouth morphodynamics 

      Nienhuis, Jaap H.; Ashton, Andrew D.; Nardin, William; Fagherazzi, Sergio; Giosan, Liviu (John Wiley & Sons, 2016-04-21)
      River mouths, shoreline locations where fluvial and coastal sediments are partitioned via erosion, trapping, and redistribution, are responsible for the ultimate sedimentary architecture of deltas and, because of their ...
    • Salt marsh erosion rates and boundary features in a shallow Bay 

      Leonardi, Nicoletta; Defne, Zafer; Ganju, Neil K.; Fagherazzi, Sergio (John Wiley & Sons, 2016-10-22)
      Herein, we investigate the relationship between wind waves, salt marsh erosion rates, and the planar shape of marsh boundaries by using aerial images and the numerical model Coupled-Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment-Transport ...
    • Spatially integrative metrics reveal hidden vulnerability of microtidal salt marshes 

      Ganju, Neil K.; Defne, Zafer; Kirwan, Matthew L.; Fagherazzi, Sergio; D’Alpaos, Andrea; Carniello, Luca (Nature Publishig Group, 2017-01-23)
      Salt marshes are valued for their ecosystem services, and their vulnerability is typically assessed through biotic and abiotic measurements at individual points on the landscape. However, lateral erosion can lead to rapid ...
    • Stage-discharge relationship in tidal channels 

      Kearney, William S.; Mariotti, Giulio; Deegan, Linda A.; Fagherazzi, Sergio (2016-12)
      Long-term records of the flow of water through tidal channels are essential to constrain the budgets of sediments and biogeochemical compounds in salt marshes. Statistical models which relate discharge to water level ...
