USGS Video on Sediments and Sea Level Rise

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) recently posted an interesting video titled Turbid Bay that discusses current research on how sediment is transported from the water column to tidal mudflats around the Bay. This work is critical to our understanding of whether sediments within the Bay are capable of building up existing tidal wetlands at a rate fast enough to keep up with sea level rise.
