A deltaic plain consists of active or abandoned deltas, which are either overlapping or contiguous to one another. A delta is a relatively flat area at the mouth of a river or a river system in which sediment load is deposited and distributed (see Vol. VI: Delta Sedimentation).That portion of a drainage basin within which the sediment load is traded or carried in transit is referred to as an. Coastal subsidence in these depositional zones are a function of five processes, each described in detail below: (1) downwarping, (2) tectonic activity, (3) consolidation of Tertiary, Pleistocene, and Holocene deposits, (4) shallow subsidence, and (5) underground water and gas extraction (Figure C53). When only natural processes are considered.
1. Introduction. All actively prograding deltas have at least one common attribute: a river supplies clastic sediments to the receiving basin more rapidly than they can be removed by marine processes (Coleman, ).Such deltas are classified into three end members, fluvial-, wave- and tide-dominated, based on the relative intensities of these influences (Fisher, , Coleman and Wright, Cited by: Akter, J.; Sarker, M.H.; Popescu, I., and Roelvink, D., Evolution of the Bengal Delta and its prevailing desh, occupying low-lying floodplains and tidal plains, has one of the largest and the most disaster-prone populous deltas in the world. The Bengal Delta is a tide-dominated delta, where tides play the key role in the sediment dispersal process and in shaping the delta Cited by:
Restoration of river deltas involves diverting sediment and water from major channels into adjoining drowned areas, where the sediment can build new land and provide a platform for regenerating wetland ecosystems. Except for local engineered structures at the points of diversion, restoration mainly relies on natural delta-building processes.

Interacting physical, biological, and chemical processes during the time of deposition exert significant control over the distribution, Thus modern deltas provide a fairly good sampling of the role that climate plays in controlling depositional processes.

Coleman, David B. Prior, John F. Lindsay, In specific areas off deltas, deposition rates are rapid and the sediment may be involved in a variety of mass-movement processes on the subaqueous slopes (slumps and slides, debris flows, and mudflows), causing rapid. Many geologists have become involved in studies of deltaic sediments and sedimentation processes.
Some of the papers in this volume are based on detailed local studies of modern deltaic sedimentary sequences, on processes of deposition, and on physical and biological characteristics of the deltaic environments. Factors controlling depositional processes and products are analyzed for three of the world’s major river-delta systems; the Mississippi, Ganges-Brahmaputra, and Mekong.
Research in the modern delta of the Mississippi River has revealed short-term changes and processes that are of significant magnitude. Deltaic lobes, each lobe covering an area of 30, sq km and having an average thickness of 35 km, switch sites of deposition on an average of every 1, yr.

Asymmetric deltas typically have two sediment sources and are characterized by morphology and facies asymmetry between the downdrift and the updrift sides.
The downdrift, sourced primarily by the feeding river, are commonly influenced by mixed river and wave by: Since ancient times, river deltas have been of fundamental importance to civilization. Owing to their early significance as agricultural lands, deltas received attention from such scholars as Homer, Herodotus, Plato, and Aristotle.

Google ScholarAuthor: Xinghe Yu, Shengli Li, Shunli Li. The term delta was first applied by the Greek philosopher Herodotus ( B.C.) to the triangular land surface formed by deposits from Nile River distributaries.
In the broadest sense deltas can be defined as those depositional features, both subaerial and subaqueous, formed by fluvial sediments. In many instances the deposition of fluvial sediments is strongly modified by marine forces such as waves, currents and tides, and depositional.
This 3-hour minute program is packaged as presented at the short course, Deltaic Sedimentation: Modern and Ancient Examples, from the Annual Meeting at Denver. The course features a broad treatment of the depositional aspects of deltas, including regional settings, process activity, and their role in sedimentation.

Coleman Goodreads Book reviews & recommendations: IMDb Movies.The mouth of a river is the point where it reaches a standing body of water, which may be a lake or the sea.
These are places where a delta may form. This variation depends on the morphology of the river mouth, the supply of sediment by the river and the processes acting on the lake or sea.
