    Abstract

    Global average temperatures have increas ed by approximately 0.6°C during the 20 th century, and are projected to increase by a minimum additional 1.4 °C by 2100. The relationship between atmospheric warmi ng and sea-level rise (SLR) is well documented, and is expected to lead to SLR of up to 0.8m by 2100 (IPCC, 2007). Estuaries are predominantly sedimentary environments, and are characterised by shallow sloping gradients, making them particularly sensitive to SLR. The Shannon estuary is the largest river estuary in Ireland and is designated as a Special Area of Conservation, providing legisl ative protection for a range of habitat types, including estuarine salt marsh (E.U., 1992).
