Description:

This account of the history and evolution of the Mississippi River Delta makes use of text, photographs, and satellite imagery to describe how the delta has formed and migrated throughout recent geologic history. Users can read about the formation and subsequent abandonment of various delta lobes and how deltaic landforms (back bays, levees, barrier islands) are formed and destroyed as a result of delta migration, rising sea level, and human activity.
