The importance of external sediment supply to both beaches and marshes has long been recognized. In the Northeastern US glacial deposits serve as the predominant sediment source for shorelines extending from New York City to the Maine/Canadian border. In this talk we present active research on the spatial distribution and characteristics of these paraglacial deposits and their first order control on both the current and future integrity of coupled marsh-beach systems.
