Trust nature: The best way to defend deltas against rising seas is with sand and mud

Trust nature: The best way to defend deltas against rising seas is with sand and mud

Sediment constantly and naturally replenishes deltas, keeping them — and all the people, fields, industries, cities and wildlife that rely on them — above the water. While scientifically proven, this surprising fact has struggled to gain much traction outside the small world of geomorphologists
