PhD project: Climate change, sea-level rise and risk of inundation of high intertidal areas

Description: Salt marshes are intertidal areas with a high ecological value because of their biodiversity and for being the first protection of the estuarine coastline. However, their stability is not guaranteed in the future and it is important to analyze how these environments will respond to the sea level rise (SLR).
