Mangroves shelter (sub) tropical coastal areas and are resilient, allowing them to recover from erosion and adapt to changing conditions. This research measures and simulates the processes that influence this adaptability. These insights are necessary to predict and protect future developments of mangroves and their contribution to coastal security.
