Abstract

A quantitative analysis of the accumulation of coastal Holocene deposits is carried out in the form of a mass-balance study for the lowland area between the Ems and Weser Rivers on the North Sea coast of Germany. The area investigated comprises various geomorphological elements and depositional environments such as the East Frisian barrier islands, sheltered and open tidal flats, bay flats of Dollart and Jadebusen, estuaries of the Ems and Weser Rivers, and extensive coastal marshlands (Fig. 1). From this point of view, this area can serve as a model for general mass-transport and accumulation of sediment connected with transgressions over coastal lowlands.
