A very unique phenomenon is taking place on the French Guyanese coastline. In the heart of the mangrove, shoals of mud and vegetation roam along the coasts and greatly modify the contour of the coastline. This dynamic marshland ecosystem is being studied by geographer Antoine Gardel and his team, who have developed observation techniques to better understand this ever-changing natural environment.
