Today, the term ria is rarely used by sedimentologists or stratigraphers, although it embodies all the characteristics of the so-called incised valleys - a topic of considerable interest since the increased understanding of the three dimensions of transgressive sequences using seismic stratigraphy.

It is a useful term which should be revived as it encompasses in its entirety all the features and resulting deposits of an incised valley whether it is estuarine or marine
