By Sean Boone, Walton Sun, Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. Jul. 26--"It looked like a very dangerous situation for anyone concerned," said beachgoer and local resident Glenda Moore. Moore was one of several witnesses to a breach of Draper Lake on July 17 that swept several children into the Gulf of Mexico. "Just the power of the water -- it's something that concerns me because of the safety (and not enough warnings posted)." According to Moore, several children had to be assisted to shore...

By Terry McCoy The 520 cubic yards of earth extracted each day from beneath the Allegheny River for the North Shore Connector is turning molehills into mountains at the former LTV Steel site in Hazelwood. By the end of the tunnel project in 2011, which will extend the Port Authority's T light rail system to the North Shore, officials estimate nearly 70,000 cubic yards of dirt, clay and sand will be mined and hauled away. That's enough dirt to fill Heinz Field 120 feet high. Day by...

By CHRISTINA ABEL After about three years of losing sand from the dunes behind their homes because of beach erosion, some homeowners in South Ponte Vedra Beach are regaining sand, very slowly and naturally. Resident Gary Close said he's among those who have gotten a pleasant surprise - more sand on the dune behind his house. "Sand has built up in front of the bulkheads and the beach has a slope so high [the] tide does not reach the [temporary sea] walls the way it used to," Close said....

By John Dodge, The Olympian, Olympia, Wash. Jul. 4--Using Capitol Lake dredge spoils to reshape the shoreline along Deschutes Parkway will be the best way to reduce effects of sediment accumulating in lower Budd Inlet if the lake is turned back into a Deschutes River estuary, a federal study released Thursday suggests. The $100,000 study by the United States Geological Survey is part of a lake-versus-estuary comparison by the Capitol Lake Adaptive Management Plan steering committee...

By McClain, Michael E Naiman, Robert J Although mountains often constitute only a small fraction of river basin area, they can supply the bulk of transported materials and exert strong regulatory controls on the ecological characteristics of river reaches and floodplains downstream. The Amazon River exemplifies this phenomenon. Its muddy waters and its expansive and highly productive white-water floodplains are largely the products of forces originating in distant Andean mountain ranges....

By Houston, John Hart, Dan; Houston, Andrew Abstract: Neogene sediments in the northern Chilean forearc display a wide range of near syndepositional structures. Analysis of the origin and distribution of these structures in space and time offers new insights into the development of the forearc basins. The structures are described in detail and show many features associated with soft-sediment deformation, pseudo-diapirism and slope failure. Synsedimentary deformation reached a peak in the...

River Delta
2013-04-18 22:36:25

A river delta is a landform that is created at the mouth of a river, where the river flows into an ocean, estuary, lake, sea, or reservoir. These deltas are built from the deposition of the sediment that is carried by the river as the flow exit’s the mouth of the river. Over a long period of time, this deposition constructs the distinctive geographic pattern of a river delta. The creation of a delta is made up of three core forms: the bottomset, topset, and foreset/frontset. Bottomset...

In geology, a conglomerate is a rock consisting of other stones that have been cemented together. Conglomerates are sedimentary rocks consisting of subangular clasts and are thus differentiated from breccias, which consist of angular clasts. Both conglomerates and breccias are characterized by clasts larger than sand (>2 mm). There are two varieties of conglomerate, defined by texture: paraconglomerates and orthoconglomerates. Paraconglomerates are one of two varieties of conglomerate...
