|Toelichting (Engels)||To see whether it is possible to reconstruct accretion rates using high resolution OSL dating combined with Bayesian statistics, a subsiding salt marsh on the Dutch Wadden island Ameland was sampled. A secondary goal of the research was to investigate the marsh response on human-caused subsidence mimicking sea-level rise as predicted for the Dutch coast in the coming century. The accretion rate on the salt marsh had already been physically monitored for the last thirty years, but to see whether an acceleration of accretion rate had occurred, accretion rates from before that period had to be reconstructed.|
