Abstract

The Inhaca system contains several high- and low-energy modern sedimentary environments, as well as four main geological units. The importance of this study lies in the influence of the sedimentation on the marine ecosystems and economy of Mozambique, and the influence global warming would have on the sediment input of the area.
