Sediment transport at inlets and the formation of subtidal in let deltas. E. H. Owens. The paper reviews the state of knowledge of inlet sediment dynamics for river systems with a tidal range greater than 2 m. The primary implications for engineering or structural activities in the vicinity of an inlet are related to shoreline protection structures at inlet margins, and dredging activities within the inlet area as a whole.
