Ontogeny of a Salt Marsh Estuary.


The development of a typical New England salt marsh, and the growth of the sand spit which shelters it, during the past 4000 years has been reconstructed from soundings and borings of the peat. The results have been interpreted with the aid of observations on the structure of the marsh and estimates of the rate of its vertical accretion based on carbon-14 determinations.
