Salt marshes are recognized as among the most dynamic, productive and important ecosystems today. This study presents new evidence of a low sea level stand within the North Inlet-Winyah Bay salt marsh system on the South Carolina coast between 4000-6500 yrs BP as well as the first use of high-resolution seismic reflection surveys to map the surficial and sub-bottom geology of this dynamic system. Facies maps based on sediment stratigraphy, lead-210 analyses and radiocarbon dates show the direct impact of sea level on the formation, evolution and stability of a low gradient saltmarsh system.Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing 29(6): 718-728.
