The area of coastal rivers with a combination of fluvial, tidal and wave processes is known as the fluvial to marine transition zone (FMTZ) and can extend up to several hundreds of kilometers upstream of the river mouth of estuaries and deltas. This area is characterized by a complex process dynamic, which results in a wide range of sedimentary facies, depositional architectures and sub-environments. In this talk, I will show case studies of mixed-energy coastal systems from the Jurassic of Argentina to the Holocene and present-day of Southeast Asia, highlighting their complexity, recent findings and challenges.
