Effects of peat compaction on delta evolution: A review on processes, responses, measuring and modeling
Abstract Peat is most compressible of all natural soils. Compaction of peat layers potentially leads to substantial amounts of land subsidence. Peat is common in many distal parts of Holocene deltas,Expand

From river valley to estuary: the evolution of the Rhine mouth in the early to middle Holocene (western Netherlands, Rhine-Meuse delta)
Abstract The aim of this paper is to reconstruct the evolution of the early to middle Holocene Rhine-Meuse river mouths in the western Netherlands and to understand the observed spatial and temporalExpand

Flood management along the Lower Mississippi and Rhine Rivers (The Netherlands) and the continuum of geomorphic adjustment
Abstract Flood management alters fundamental fluvial processes that have geomorphic consequences for rivers and floodplains. The Lower Mississippi and Rhine Rivers (The Netherlands) are two importantExpand

Late Weichselian and Holocene palaeogeography of the Rhine–Meuse delta, The Netherlands
Abstract A large number of lithological borehole descriptions, 14C dates, archaeological artefacts, and gradients of palaeochannels were used to reconstruct the Holocene development of theExpand

Avulsion Frequency, Avulsion Duration, and Interavulsion Period of Holocene Channel Belts in the Rhine-Meuse Delta, the Netherlands
ABSTRACT Avulsion parameters greatly influence alluvial architecture, because they determine channel density and interconnectedness. Reliable data on avulsion parameters is still scarce. From aExpand

Factors Controlling the Holocene Avulsion History of the Rhine-Meuse Delta (The Netherlands)
ABSTRACT The avulsion history of the Holocene Rhine-Meuse delta (The Netherlands) was reconstructed, on a timescale of millenia, using detailed paleogeographic maps based on approximately 200,000Expand

Fluvial Sedimentology
At the 8th International Conference on Fluvial Sedimentology in Delft in 2005 it was decided to make a special issue on fluvial sedimentary research in The Netherlands. The current special issueExpand

Impacts of 25 years of groundwater extraction on subsidence in the Mekong delta, Vietnam
Many major river deltas in the world are subsiding and consequently become increasingly vulnerable to flooding and storm surges, salinization and permanent inundation. For the Mekong Delta, annualExpand

Avulsion: The relative roles of autogenic and allogenic processes
Abstract Avulsion, the abandonment of all or part of a channel belt in favor of a new course, is controlled by both autogenic (intrabasinal) and allogenic (extrabasinal) processes. However, theirExpand
