Steven Dykstra’s Research Showcase: Where Rivers End

Rivers end at the sea, or so we are taught. However, the study of fluvial hydrology commonly ends where tidal influence begins. Here, fluvial and marine forces overlap in long transitional regions (often 100s of kilometers) where coastal cities and ports face a double threat from river flooding and storm surge.
