Resources | River Mouths


31 large river mouths have been identified between Sarnia and Tobermory.

River Mouths have high rates of sediment deposition, and when this water moves farther out into the nearshore it can form a "plume". The plume shape leaving the river can vary greatly depending on the wind and wave conditions. Important during spring high water flows.
