Abstract

The Dee Estuary is a hypertidal coastal plain estuary, formed by the flooding of the river valley cut by the River Dee during the last major glaciation. One of three major estuaries emptying into Liverpool Bay along with the Ribble and Mersey it is located at the junction of north-east Wales and north-west England, on the eastern side of the Irish Sea. The estuary section of the Dee is 20 km long, and 8.5 km wide at the mouth. The sea bed is covered by a thick (up to 18 m) sediment layer, deposited after the last Ice Age, consisting of fine-grained sands, silt muds, and some gravel beds. Infilling has led to the gradual accretion of the sand and mudbanks, and an increase in saltmarsh area.
