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 physical characteristics of the Dee make it an ideal location for studying turbulence-sediment interactions and flocculation: It has a large tidal prism, high tidal range, and abundant cohesive sediment.
