Abstract
    Tidal flat landscape formation and evolution are closely related to the biotic and abiotic processes that take place in the intertidal environments. Extensive studies have been carried out on the relevant agents such as hydrodynamics, sediment transport and the related ecosystem (vegetation and benthic communities) dynamics. However, the feedback mechanism among multiple agents is complex and many key aspects are currently understudied. In times of accelerating global change, knowledge of the mechanisms that drive tidal flat evolution is of great importance to ecosystem conservation and restoration. This thesis addresses the currently understudied subjects related to intertidal hydrodynamic processes as well as the intertidal landscape developments, which are of great economic and ecological importance.
