This study investigates subtidal circulation in the Maroni Estuary on the border of French Guiana and Suriname. The Maroni has yet to be modified by anthropogenic change, presenting a unique opportunity to study subtidal flow forcing mechanisms and structure in a natural estuarine environment. A combination of in-situ collected data and analytical models revealed that river discharge was responsible for subtidal out-estuary flow, but wind can alter this pattern despite elevated river flow. Further, channel curvature and lateral density gradients influence lateral flows, producing a three-layer flow structure that lends to the elevated sediment accumulation on the Suriname coast.
