Coastal salt marsh, exposed to tidal inundation with sea water, therefore characterised by herbaceous plants with special adaptations to saline environments. Ditches/channels in these marshes should be tagged with waterway=ditch. Grid-like ditches in saltmarshes were often dug to drain standing water pools in the marsh and therefore eliminate salt marsh mosquitoes.

How to map

Draw the outline area of the area and tag it with natural=wetland + wetland=saltmarsh.

With tidal=yes it can be shown that the area is in the tidal zone.
