This course is a graduate-level introduction to sediment dynamics occurring along the land-sea continuum, focusing on the portion spanning intertidal to nearshore regions. It will be divided into two parts: sediment transport processes and sedimentary environments (fluvial, intertidal, estuarine, coastal and nearshore regions). Human impacts on sedimentary processes, as well as responses to climate change, will also be considered. Sediment/biological interactions will be a theme throughout the course, including student-led discussions of recent publications.
