This report is an initial definition study into the effectiveness of saltings in the role of sea defence. The objective has been to identify sites of major saltings and to discuss with the relevant authorities the state of those saltings with the aim of identifying any problems, and if there are, how they are being tackled. Discussions were held with various representatives from Water Authorities, the Nature Conservancy Council and the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology to determine any parallel research. Relevant literature was also reviewed and information sought as to whether related research is being carried out elsewhere in the United Kingdom. The areas most troubled by erosion or 'die back' are identified and the attempts at regeneration by the relevant authorities are discussed. Finally, recommendations are made for future research in co-operation with other interested bodies. This report was prepared for the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, within the research programme commission 14C.
