Abstract
    This article presents an overview of a range of simple and high-technology techniques and scientific methods used in a small, human-managed, highly dynamic, temperate macrotidal estuary to quantify the movement and deposition of fine sediment in space and time. The principle of each technique and its limitations are exposed. It is shown that this multi-technique approach is relevant to a better understanding of sedimentary processes, rhythms and rates, while the data acquired are of importance to reliable modelling. Permanent feedback from high-resolution field monitoring is still a necessary pre-requisite in forecasting the evolution of estuarine systems.
