Rias, estuaries and incised valleys: Is a ria an estuary?

AuthorsEvans, Graham; Prego, R.
Incised valley
Issue Date2003
CitationMarine Geology 196(3-4): 171-175 (2003)
AbstractToday, the term ria is rarely used by sedimentologists or stratigraphers, although it embodies all the characteristics of the so-called incised valleys – a topic of considerable interest since the increased understanding of the three dimensions of transgressive sequences using seismic stratigraphy. When it is used, it is usually referred to as a type of estuary; however, in many cases, only a minor part is influenced by estuarine processes. It is a useful term which should be revived as it encompasses in its entirety all the features and resulting deposits of an incised valley whether it is estuarine or marine.
