Description: This course will investigate physical and biological processes that contribute to the development of fluvial-deltaic environments. Materials will include deriving physical erosion, transport, and deposition laws, in order to evaluate modern processes that shape deltas and coastlines. The course will also focus on sedimentary deposits of fluvial-deltaic systems and preservation potential of the stratigraphy, by examining ancient depositional systems that are preserved in the rock record. The course will explore these topics by reviewing science literature that utilizes numerical, experimental, and field studies, to further theory on the development of fluvial-deltaic systems. Repeatable for Credit.
