Transitional waters 1

Water from the Deben estuary (bottom) meets the North Sea (top), divided here by a narrow shingle bank, only visible at low tide. This is one of a number of banks that forms the ebb tidal delta at the estuary mouth through the transient interplay between wave and tidal processes. These features are hard to capture in traditional surveys, but advances in mapping using drones is allowing us to map these morphologies in more detail.
