Description :
The purpose of this paper is to describe the late Holocene development of the Connecticut River. This analysis is based on studies of water circulation and sediment transport in the modern estuary and the Holocene stratigraphy preserved below sea level. The goal of the study is to construct a model of the past estuarine landscape, and from this model to evaluate the degree to which an earlier inherited morphology controls the functioning of the modern estuary and its future evolution.
