Scholarcy highlights

  • After the diachronic cartographic analysis of Marin Bay, the conceptors discovered a quick progradation of the shore in the bay
  • Measurements of erodibility were taken on the square metre scale, in different vegetal covers extrapolated to the watershed scale
  • It appears that cultivated areas mostly intensively release the biggest contents of soil particles
  • Bathymetric and current aspects do not aid the evacuation of these particles when they settle in the bay
  • One can conclude that the transformations of the natural landscape are linked with the transformations of soil occupation modes
