Estuaries… many of us live on or near an estuary and maybe use it for boating or fishing or swimming, or even just for the view. Estuaries are often at the heart of coastal cities. But what’s their story? What’s happening under the water and why are our estuaries increasingly threatened? This programme defines what an estuary is, explains where they are found, and describes the ways that they are formed. It also includes a case study of a typical estuary and how tidal flow, salt water wedging, seasonal change, human use and pollution are effecting it.
