Abstract Tidal landscapes are currently threatened by climate change and increasing human interferences, and are possibly subject to irreversible transformations with far-reaching social, economical, and ecological implications worldwide. The Venice Lagoon formed over the last 7500 years and represents an outstanding example of tidal landscapes where natural and anthropic processes coexist. The Venice Lagoon is a peerless laboratory to study the deposits associated with salt-marshes, tidal flats, and tidal channels under variable rates of subsidence and sediment supply. Investigations on salt marshes and tidal channels of the Venice Lagoon can provide precious insights to understand morphodynamic processes typifying microtodal lagoonal environments worldwide.
