Deltas out of shape: regime changes of sediment dynamics in tide-influenced 
deltas

Intertidal areas in river deltas disappear because of land reclamation and sea level rise. This alters the tidal motion in delta channels and changes the pathways of sand, silt and clay.  Researchers claim that innovative monitoring approaches can be combined with model 
simulations to unravel the causes of high turbidity, siltation and bank erosion.
