Analytical and sampling constraints of 210pb dating
Both coastal infrastructures and ecosystems will be negatively affected by SLR and society will need to adapt relatively fast to the new conditions.
ABSTRACT: Trends in eutrophication and meromixis pose serious threats to water quality and biodiversity in freshwater ecosystems around the world.
Although a reliable estimation of local SLR trends is needed to assess coastal zone vulnerabilities and plan adaptation strategies, instrumental records are usually short or sparse, especially in developing countries.
Here we show that ²¹⁰Pb-dated sedimentary records from mangrove saltmarshes can provide useful decadal records of local SLR trends.
Core chronologies were established using 137Cs and 210Pb.
