Abstract:Analysis of stratigraphic records and historic charts has allowed comparison of Holocene and historical rates of accommodation space change in the Humber Basin. Apparent rate differences are explained using a morphological model and an analytical approach to separate out the effect of differing forcing signals. This understanding is then used to construct a simple behavioural model of how estuary volumes change over time that is consistent over millennial to annual time-scales. Given the desire to promote the sustainable management of estuaries, the approach provides a means to identify the natural variability that should be anticipated. Distinguishing such signals from influences such as sea-level rise is also important for the proper attribution of impacts due to climate change.
