Supralittoral Sediment

Supralittoral Sediment -

Supralittoral sediment describes habitats formed of sediment above the high-tide mark and exposed to the splash of sea waves.

In Kent, there are 2,281 hectares of supralittoral sediment (KHS2003) - if multiplied three and half times, this would cover the area of the Isle of Sheppey.
