Estuarine Facies Models: Conceptual Basis and Stratigraphic Implications: PERSPECTIVE
ABSTRACT The nature and organization of facies within incised-valley estuaries is controlled by the interplay between marine processes (waves and tides), which generally decrease in intensityExpand

Morphologic and facies trends through the fluvial–marine transition in tide-dominated depositional systems: A schematic framework for environmental and sequence-stratigraphic interpretation
Abstract Most tide-dominated estuarine and deltaic deposits accumulate in the fluvial-to-marine transition zone, which is one of the most complicated areas on earth, because of the large number ofExpand

Towards the standardization of sequence stratigraphy
Abstract Sequence stratigraphy emphasizes facies relationships and stratal architecture within a chronological framework. Despite its wide use, sequence stratigraphy has yet to be included in anyExpand

Classification of clastic coastal depositional environments
Abstract This paper proposes a new classification for clastic coastal environments which includes the full range of major depositional settings including deltas, strand plains, tidal flats, estuariesExpand

Processes, Morphodynamics, and Facies of Tide-Dominated Estuaries
As defined in this chapter, an estuary forms during a shoreline transgression and then fills during a progradational phase that is transitional to a delta. The spatial distribution of processes,Expand

Late Quaternary Deltaic and Carbonate Sedimentation in the Gulf of Papua Foreland Basin: Response to Sea-Level Change
ABSTRACT The rivers that drain the wet, mountainous island of New Guinea discharge about 1.5 billion tonnes/yr of sediments into the adjacent seas, including the foreland basin between New Guinea andExpand

Dynamics and facies model of a macrotidal sand‐bar complex, Cobequid Bay—Salmon River Estuary (Bay of Fundy)
The 40-km-long, Cobequid Bay—Salmon River estuary has a maximum tidal range of 16·3 m and experiences limited wave action. Sediment, which is derived primarily from areas seaward of the estuary, isExpand
