Tide-Dominated Deltas

  title={Tide-Dominated Deltas},
  author={Steven L. Goodbred and Yoshiki Saito},
Among tidally influenced sedimentary environments, tide-dominated deltas are perhaps the most variable and difficult to characterize. This variability is due in part to the major role that fluvial systems play in defining their delta, with rivers differing widely in discharge, sediment load, seasonality, and grain size. Tide-dominated deltas also tend to be large systems that can extend hundreds of kilometers across and along the continental margin. The associated sediment transport regimes are… CONTINUE READING
