New paper from Nat Weston finds increased accretion in US East Coast marshes

A new paper from Nat Weston's lab reveals how salt marshes along the U.S. East Coast have responded to accelerating sea level rise by building elevation more quickly to keep pace with the sea over the last century. The study was published in Earth’s Future, which publishes interdisciplinary research on the past, present and future of our planet and its inhabitants. Read more in the AGU press release.
