Saltmarsh Squeeze
Saltmarsh Squeeze
This picture shows an effect called Saltmarsh Squeeze. This occurs where rivers have been embanked to prevent flooding. The area of saltmarsh is squeezed between the sea wall and the point where submersion by the tide is too long each day for even salt tolerant plants to take root. Here what saltmarsh has started to develop is being eroded away.
