- A biomorphodynamic model coupling two-way biophysical interactions is developed.
- Vegetated and bare tidal flats respond differently to wave action.
- Sea level rise (SLR) drives landward migration of salt marshes and mud zone.
- Differential deposition results in steeper marsh-edge transition zone.
- Carbon accumulation on marshlands may be enhanced with an increasing SLR rate.
