The significance of large sediment supply, active tectonism, and eustasy on margin sequence development: Late Quaternary stratigraphy and evolution of the Ganges–Brahmaputra delta
Abstract Borehole data from the Ganges–Brahmaputra delta system unveil an intriguing Late Quaternary history controlled by immense sediment discharge, tectonics, and eustasy. Sea level firstExpand
Nature of sediment accumulation on the Amazon continental shelf
Sediment accumulation on the Brazilian continental shelf near the Amazon River is investigated using radiochemical (e.g.210Pb,14C) techniques to provide a better understanding of this major dispersalExpand
Enormous Ganges-Brahmaputra sediment discharge during strengthened early Holocene monsoon
Rivers are the main source of terrigenous sediment delivered to continental margins and thus exert a major control on coastal evolution and sequence development. However, little is known about pastExpand
Stratigraphic evolution of the late Holocene Ganges–Brahmaputra lower delta plain
Sediment cores from the Ganges–Brahmaputra delta in Bangladesh were examined for sedimentological character, clay mineralogy, elemental trends (C, N, S), and 14C geochronology to develop a model forExpand
Controls on facies distribution and stratigraphic preservation in the Ganges–Brahmaputra delta sequence
Abundant sediment supply and accommodation space in the Bengal Basin have led to the development of a major Late Quaternary delta sequence. This sequence has formed in a tectonically active settingExpand
Subaqueous delta of the Ganges-Brahmaputra river system
Abstract The Ganges-Brahmaputra is among the world's three largest river systems in terms of sediment load, but, until now, no high-resolution seismic data have been obtained to document the natureExpand
Sediment deposition and accretion in a Mid-Atlantic (U.S.A.) tidal freshwater marsh
Sediment deposition and accretion rates in a Virginia tidal freshwater marsh were measured to provide insight to the processes and time scales that are important for maintaining marsh surfaceExpand
The deltaic nature of Amazon shelf sedimentation
Despite the annual discharge of more than a billion tons of sediment by the Amazon River, the sedimentary environment near the river mouth has little subaerial expression and thus does not meet theExpand
Sea-bed Mixing and Particle Residence Times in Biologically and Physically Dominated Estuarine Systems: a Comparison of Lower Chesapeake Bay and the York River Subestuary
Biologically dominated lower Chesapeake Bay and the physically dominated York River subestuary are contrasted in terms of the dynamics of sediment mixing, strata formation and sea-bed particleExpand
The geological record preserved by Amazon shelf sedimentation
Abstract A recent study of the subaqueous delta and coastal plain near the mouth of the Amazon River provides insight to the geological record created there and elsewhere. A compound clinoformExpand
