About two and a half year ago, I participated in a workshop on salt marsh modelling just before the AGU meeting in San Francisco. Over there, we came up with the idea to write a review paper on salt marshes. This idea has been lingering on until Sergio Fagherazzi of Boston University put it in motion and wrote a paper that we submitted to Review of Geophysics. I came out as the first thing this year!
You are warned! The rumor is that Sergio fell asleep while proofreading the manuscript!
