Definition of Salt marsh:
Low, wet, muddy area periodically or continuously flooded by brackish or salt water to a shallow depth, usually characterized by grasses and other low plants (but not trees); land transitional between terrestrial and aquatic systems where saturation with water is the dominant factor controlling plant and animal communities and soils.[1].
This is the common definition for Salt marsh, other definitions can be discussed in the article


Salt marsh is a key habitat of transitional waters lying at the interface between the land and the sea, depending on, and periodically covered by tidal sea water. Chapman (1960[2], 1977 a[3], b [4]) describes nine different geographical salt marsh regions throughout the world.
