Shipwrecks and Sediment (Amelia Astley and Frances Dunn)

Frances started with a talk on understanding the sustainability of delta environments by modelling macro-scale sediment delivery to deltas under future environmental changes. Following on from this, but sticking with the sediment theme, Amy presented on her research around the micro-scale marine processes effecting the reworking of sediment around wreck sites. The case study she presented for us showed minimal changes in the amounts of sediment around shipwreck sites – a conclusion that generated an interesting discussion during the Q&A about the likelihood of this occurring and what it means for this area of research.
