Sediment Accretion in a Protected Mangrove Forest of Kuala Selangor, Malaysia

H. Mahmood, K. Misri, B. Japar Sidik and O. Saberi    

Abstract: Sediment accretion/erosion study was conducted by artificial horizon method at Kuala Selangor Nature Park Mangrove forest, Malaysia. Monthly sediment accretion and erosion ranged from 0.32 to-0.34 cm. During the 20 months of study period, a total 1.69 cm sediment was accreted in the mangroves, which constitute the monthly and yearly rates of 0.085 and 1.02 cm, respectively. A significant (F, p<0.05) relationship was observed among the monthly sediment accretion/erosion, rainfall and number of spring high tide that flooded the forest floor.
